American Exceptionalism And Us Foreign Policy: Public Diplomacy At The End Of The Cold War, Steve Yetiv

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

This book offers an interesting foray into an important and timely subject.

Conflict And War In The Middle-East, 1967-1991: Regional Dynamic And The Superpowers, Steve Yetiv

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

The two books under review here take substantially different approaches to Middle East politics. 'the first book attempts to examine the region by use of theory as well as empirics, whereas the second is primarily empirical in nature. The latter explains Middle East politics primarily from the regional perspective, and in particular, from Iran's vantage point, whereas the former places regional politics within the broader context of world politics.
