Decisions in Crisis: Israel, 1967 and 1973

By Michael Brecher

University of California Press, 1980, 496 pp.

Michael Brecher continues his inquiries into national decision-making in critical situations. In this superior work of research and analysis, he goes about as far as one can go both in the play-by-play description of Israel's decisions in the two major wars of 1967 and 1973, and in relating those events to his complex comparative model of pre-crisis, crisis and post-crisis behavior.
