This unique volume intensively studies the nature and extent of US ;Israeli relations, from 1948 through the Bush and Obama administrations. Leading experts in the field-including Israeli and North American scholars from a variety of political perspectives-contribute original essays on the principal political, religious, ethnic, military, economic, and juridical connections between the United States and Israel. Specific topics covered in this new book include: the pro-Israel lobby in the United States; the US Jewish community and its relations to Israel; evangelical Christians and Israel; military and economic ties between the United States and Israel; the threat of a nuclear Iran for both countries; and the impact of American jurisprudence on Israel. Section introductions from the editor effectively contextualize the issues and provide students with an in-depth understanding of the past, present, and future of the US ;Israel relationship.
