Defense of the Middle East: Problems of American Policy
Defense of the Middle East: Problems of American Policy
By John C. Campbell
Harper (for the Council on Foreign Relations), 1958, 392 pp

A critical study of recent American policy in the Middle East with an analysis of present and future problems. Drawing on the ideas of an expert study group as well as his own research and observation, the author, a former State Department official, pleads for a national strategy in which military, political and economic factors are interwoven in a consistent pattern. His conclusions are well thought out.
