The Arab-Israeli conflict is fraught with political complexity. It entails long-standing, entrenched views on the part of all the participants, direct and indirect, and is heavily charged with emotion. It is a subject of great political and military actuality. The Middle East is fast becoming a testing ground for modern weapons systems and for modern, conventional war doctrines, a recent example being the Yom Kippur War. Most publications--articles, papers, books--on the war were produced while sentiments were still high and the armies still formulating their conclusions. Confusion, controversy, and emotions eclipsed clarity. An international symposium was held two years after the war to objectively debate the war, its lessons, and the Middle East conflict in general. This book contains all of the speeches and papers presented at that symposium plus a record of three related events. These were question-and-answer sessions with Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Foreign Minister Yigal Allon, and Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek. These interviews, along with the symposium, contribute to an understanding of the Middle East conflict and of the thinking and personalities of key figures in Israeli life and politics.
