Accidental Empire by Gershom Gorenberg
Book DescriptionIn "The Accidental Empire", Gershom Gorenberg examines the strange birth of the settler movement in the ten years following the Six-Day War and finds that it was as much the child of Labour Party socialism as of religious extremism. The giants of Israeli history - Dayan, Meir, Eshkol, Allon - all played major roles in this drama, as did more contemporary figures like Sharon, Rabin, and Peres. Gorenberg also shows how three American presidents turned a blind eye to what was happening in the territories, and reveals their strategic reasons for doing so. Drawing on newly opened archives and extensive interviews, Gorenberg calls into question much of what we think we know about this issue that continues to haunt the Middle East.

In the fog of the 1967 war and its aftermath, Israel's generals and politicians took a series of fateful decisions that led to a bloody, bitter and seemingly endless occupation of Arab lands. This work takes us behind the scenes of history to glimpse those decisions being made. It reveals the motivation, influences and strategies of key players.
