The United States And Egypt
The United States And Egypt
By William B. Quandt
Brookings, 1990, 82 pp

William Quandt's purpose is to concentrate on the essentials of the U.S.-Egyptian relationship, on how the security and other interests of the two sides have been served by past policies, and on what future changes should be made-here he has some specific recommendations, especially on military aid and debt relief. His knowledge of Egyptian society and of the Washington scene serves him in good stead. Brevity in this case is a real virtue; the book may be more widely read by those who ought to read it.
