Israel and Hizbollah: An asymmetric conflict in historical and comparative perspective
Edited by Clive Jones and Sergio Catignani | Routledge, 2012 (Paperback)
Since the end of the Cold War, academic debate over the nature of war in the contemporary world has focused upon the asymmetric nature of conflict among a raft of failed or failing states, often held together by only a fragile notion of a shared communal destiny. Little scholarly attention has been paid, however, to one such conflict that predates the ending of the Cold War, yet still appears as intractable as ever: Israel’s hostile relationship with Lebanon and in particular, its standoff with the Lebanese Shi’a militia group, Hizbollah. As events surrounding the ‘Second Lebanon War’ in the summer of 2006 demonstrate, the clear potential for further cross border violence as well as the potential for a wider regional conflagration that embraces Damascus and Tehran remains as acute as ever.
The Bride and the Dowry: Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinians in the Aftermath of the June 1967 War
Avi Raz | Yale University Press, 2012
Israel’s victory in the June 1967 Six Day War provided a unique opportunity for resolving the decades-old Arab-Zionist conflict. Having seized the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, and the Golan Heights, Israel for the first time in its history had something concrete to offer its Arab neighbors: it could trade land for peace. Yet the political deadlock persisted after the guns fell silent. This book asks why.

Our aim is to serve as a functioning member-driven association. The benefits of being part of such a network were self-evident at the EAIS Launch Conference and, as the EAIS develops, these benefits will multiply.
Our current goal is to establish an interactive website which will enable members to be in regular contact with each other in order to facilitate the exchange of newly published papers, a network for postgraduate students, the exchange of teaching materials and general information for those in our field. It will also be a database of expertise, information about visiting lecturers, forthcoming conferences and new books.
We strongly urge you to become a members so that the EAIS is able to develop. Please click here to join.
