This chapter reviews Isaac Altera's Eisenhower and Israel. The literature presents a detailed analysis of U.S. policy toward Israel during the years 1953–7, augmented by a much briefer account of the years 1958–1960. It argues that despite the introduction of an “even-handed” approach toward the Arab-Israeli conflict—which Israel considered highly dangerous to its security—President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his secretary of state, John Foster Dulles, never wavered in their basic commitment to the survival of the Jewish state.

Keywords:   Isaac Altera, Eisenhower and Israel, U.S. policy, Arab-Israeli conflict, president Dwight D. Eisenhower, John Foster Dulles, Jewish state
