[ISBN: 978-1-935982-12-8; 170pp; $7] Since early 2009, it has seemed that the once-warm relations between Turkey and Israel have reached crisis point. To complicate matters further, both countries are close partners of the United States. In this timely title, a group of leading scholar-practitioners from all three countries jointly explore this crisis.
In April 2011, University of Virginia politics professor and veteran Middle East analyst William B. Quandt brought leading scholar-practitioners from Israel, Turkey, and the United States to a one-day gathering at the University of Virginia. Their task: To unravel and try to understand the tangle of accusations, sensitivities, fears, and misunderstandings that had arisen among policymakers in these three capitals. Troubled Triangle: The United States, Turkey, and Israel in the New Middle East is a record of the deliberations among these experts, that has been edited by Dr. Quandt.
