This unique volume intensively studies the nature and extent of US–Israeli relations, from 1948 through the Bush and Obama administrations. Leading experts in the field—including Israeli and North American scholars from a variety of political perspectives—contribute original essays on the principal political, religious, ethnic, military, economic, and juridical connections between the United States and Israel. Specific topics covered in this new book include: the pro-Israel lobby in the United States; the US Jewish community and its relations to Israel; evangelical Christians and Israel; military and economic ties between the United States and Israel; the threat of a nuclear Iran for both countries; and the impact of American jurisprudence on Israel. Section introductions from the editor effectively contextualize the issues and provide students with an in-depth understanding of the past, present, and future of the US–Israel relationship.

“Despite the ups and downs in the US-Israel relationship, the close ties between the two countries is one of the few constants in the tumultuous Middle East. The relationship is complex and multifaceted, which is why a collection of essays by Israeli and American experts in very different fields is able to provide deep analysis of so many of the attributes of this relationship. And there are some real gems in this collection. Scholars and teachers will find Robert Freedman's edited collection Israel and the United States an invaluable resource.”
Ronald W. Zweig, Taub Professor of Israel Studies, New York University

“Professor Freedman's edited book offers the most comprehensive coverage of the truly special relationships between the United States and Israel, a detailed and often penetrating set of analyses by top specialists in various aspects of those complicated relationships. All chapters are clearly written and are accessible to students on various levels and to the general, policy-attentive public. This volume should be on the shelf of anyone interested in Israel, the Middle East and, indeed, American foreign policy.”
