The Middle East Military Balance 1992-1993

The standard for handbooks on the military holdings of various countries is, of course, the annual Military Balance published by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. The Middle East Military Balance meets, and indeed surpasses, this high standard. Written by some of Israel's foremost military experts (including a former head of Israeli intelligence), it provides unusually extensive military detail not available in the IISS publication (for example, descriptions of main air bases) and adds thoughtful analytical essays to boot. Turn to this work for, inter alia, a comprehensive statistical description of the intifada, a discussion of Jordanian lessons learned from the Gulf War, or an appraisal of the reorganization of the Israeli force structure. A valuable reference work.
