Présentation de l'éditeur

Avi Shlaim's The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World is a fresh and informed account of the modern world's most intractable conflict. In the 1920s, hard-line Zionists developed the doctrine of the 'Iron Wall': negotiations with the Arabs must always be from a position of military strength, and only when sufficiently strong Israel would be able to make peace with her Arab neighbours. This doctrine, argues Avi Shlaim, became central to Israeli policy; dissenters were marginalized and many opportunities to reconcile with Palestinian Arabs were lost. Drawing on a great deal of new material and interviews with many key participants, Shlaim places Israel's political and military actions under and uncompromising lens. His analysis will bring scant comfort to partisans on both sides, but it will be required reading for anyone interested in this fascinating and troubled region of the world. 'The Iron Wall is strikingly fair-minded, scholarly, cogently reasoned and makes enthralling ... reading'
   Philip Ziegler, Daily Telegraph 'Anyone wanting to understand the modern Middle East should start by reading this elegantly written and scrupulously researched book'
   Trevor Royle, Sunday Herald 'A milestone in modern scholarship of the Middle East'
   Edward Said 'Fascinating ... Shlaim presents compelling evidence for a revaluation of traditional Israeli history'
   Ethan Bronner, The New York Times Book Review Avi Shlaim is Professor of International Relations at St. Antony's College, Oxford. His previous books include Collusion Across the Jordan (1988) and War and Peace in the Middle East (1995).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Palestine since 1945 11 juin 2005

Some reviews of Shlaim's "Iron Wall" suggest incorrectly that it explains the roots of Arab-Jewish conflict over Palestine. In fact the book offers only a 27-page "prologue," insightful and well written but largely based on secondary and tertiary sources and far too limited in scope. So far the best work on this topic remains the somewhat formal and pedantic first 129 pages of Kimmerling's and Migdal's "Palestinian People." Shlaim's book provides notably concise summaries, so effective that the first one or two pages of each chapter provide enough information for a first reading of the book.

Avi Shlaim, The Iron Wall, Israel and the Arab World delves into the Arab-Israeli conflict from the assertion of Israeli independence, however it also breifly yet discriptively and informatively discusses the concept of Zionism and its rootsm including excerpts from Herzl and Jabotinsky. From its use of Jabotinsky early in the book, Avi Shlaim uses his essay discussing an Israeli Iron Wall of power superiority (generally hard power) throughout the whole book to essentially provide and analysis, analogy and comparison of Israeli policy towards its Arab neightbours, the broader Arab world and the international community itself.
People may unfarily brandish Avi Shlaim as a revionist historian in a negative sense: I would argue the opposite. Yes he is a revionist historian but in a positive sense. His writings are neither ideological or partial towards the Arabs and emotional. This book is the work of a realist who is fair, concise and factual. He adresses longstanding propagandised facts by adhering to the use of largely primary sources. He dispels the notion of "There is no one for Israel to talk to on the Arab side", "Israel is a david state while the Arabs are goliath" and "Israel best serves its security interests in the contemparary geo-political situation by using raw power as its basis for negotians". Revisionism is often far more reliable then historians from the time: They do not have the emotional and political connection to politics of the period rendering them more so impartial and factual then others.
Israel has a long history of creating facts on the ground to best suit the national interests of the Greater Israel ideolouge, however, Shlaim delves into the complezities of these factoids and discusses the power relationship between the Arabs and Israel in an inquisitive manner. He constantly brings up Israeli-American relations basing them on reality. American support for Israel is not 100%, as some will have you believe.
Unfortunately the book didn't delve into the political situation between Israel and Clintons America to an extenet which was necassary. It would have been a good use of an aditional 6-7 pagse if he adressed Clintons extentsion of domestic politics to foregin policy, which allowe AIAPAC to infaltrate congress and his government increassing the support for Israeli policy towards Palestine and the Arabs.
Altogether however it is one of the more interesting recollections and revisions of Israel history you will read- while at all time making good use of largely Israeli sources and primary sources.
