The US has a long history of direct involvement and activism in solving Israel-Palestine conflict. After the 1973 Ramadan/Yom Kippur war between Israel and the main Arab states led by Egypt and Syria, US adopted and donned the role of a peacemaker, albeit a biased one, that was focussed on bringing lasting peace between Israel and her Arab neighbours. This policy bore fruit in the Camp David Accords between Israel and Egypt in 1978. Israel and Egypt have engaged in a cold peace that has stood the test of time until the present time. However, the Americans have not been successful in their endeavours to bring peace, particularly between Israel and Syria as well as between Israel and the Palestinians. The present work seeks to detail US efforts to bring about peace between Israel and her Arab neighbours. The study is arranged into 9 chapters that are consecutively connected to each other and seek to provide detailed analysis as regards US role in the region from 1967 until date. This work will be useful to students of politics and international relations, both at the undergraduate, post-graduate and research levels. Students of West Asian politics will find the book invaluable in understanding the Israel-Palestine conflict and the role of US in it.
