Soviet Decision Making in Practice: The USSR and Israel, 1947-1954

Essentially a study of Soviet policy toward the Palestine question and relations with the new state of Israel up to the decisive turn toward the Arabs in the mid-1950s, this is the best available book on a subject which has long preoccupied Israeli diplomats and scholars. While not totally enlightening on the procedures of Soviet decision-making, it excels in describing the interaction between Soviet great-power interests in the Middle East and the Jewish question in the U.S.S.R.
