The National Security of Small States in a Changing World

Collected essays from an April 1995 international conference cosponsored by the BESA Center and the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations of the Hebrew University, considering the relationship between small states and their large allies, in comparative perspective. In this volume, edited by Efraim Inbar & Gabriel Sheffer, scholars from a variety of disciplines address the following essential questions: what are the linkages between systematic features and the small states’ environment; does the emerging international system augur well for small states; what can be expected of allies, big and small; what are the interactions between small states and regional organizations; what national strategies best serve the precarious survival of small states; and what are the appropriate defence policies in the changing technological and political environment?
