Following its creation in 1948, Israel was confronted with the challenge of establishing relations with key players in the Middle East, in the face of opposition from most of the Arab states. Patten explores the genesis and development of Israel's foreign relations with Iran, Turkey, and Ethiopia, known as the "Policy of the Periphery." Highlighting the pragmatism and Realpolitik at the heart of this policy, Israel and the Cold War analyzes the national interests and mutual concerns which shaped relations and strategy at the United Nations during the critical moments of the establishment of the State of Israel and the following forty years, before the ramifications of the Iranian Revolution became apparent. Based primarily on UN documents, this is a vital primary resource for those researching the period, as well as the formulation of foreign policy in the Middle East.

The Cold War in the Third World explores the complex interrelationships between the Soviet-American struggle for global preeminence and the rise of the Third World. Those two distinct but overlapping phenomena placed a powerful stamp on world history throughout the second half of the twentieth century. Featuring original essays by twelve leading scholars, this collection examines the influence of the newly emerging states of the Third World on the course of the Cold War and on the international behavior and priorities of the two superpowers. It also analyzes the impact of the Cold War on the developing states and societies of Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. Blending the new, internationalist approaches to the Cold War with the latest research on the global south in a tumultuous era of decolonization and state-building, The Cold War in the Third World bring together diverse strands of scholarship to address some of the most compelling issues in modern world history.
