The Control Of The Middle East Arms Race

Almost a handbook for prospective arms control negotiations in the Middle East, this study raises important issues, provides useful information and relates arms control objectives to stages in likely peace negotiations between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Unlike some, Kemp does not ignore Israel's nuclear capability, but he does not really give much of a clue as to what to do with it either. On the whole, a solid piece of work with few surprises.
