Middle Eastern Security: Prospects for an Arms Control Regime

A collection of essays from a BESA Center international conference examining the obstacles to an effective arms control regime in the Middle East and assesses the prospects of overcoming them. The first part of the book examines the role of the extra-regional actors: the United States, Western Europe and Russia. The second section analyzes the main issues on the arms control agenda: the proliferation of chemical and nuclear weapons and the spread of ballistic missiles. The book concludes by exploring the dynamics of the region and discusses the domestic aspects of strategic doctrines, the prospects of establishing confidence-building measures and the international context of a Middle Eastern arms control regime. Edited by Efraim Inbar and Shmuel Sandler.
