|Arms Control in the Middle East|
EuroMeSCo recommends this recently published book by Emily Landau (2006), entitled Arms Control in the Middle East. Cooperative Security Dialogue and Regional Constraints (Sussex: Sussex Academic Press).
“This exceptionally thorough and perceptive examination of the role of ideas and seminar diplomacy in multilateral arms control negotiations is a major contribution to international relations theory and to our understanding of Middle Eastern regional security. It shows persuasively that the 1990s Middle East arms control multilateral negotiations, which have frequently been dismissed as mere ‘talk-shops’, played a crucial role in building the conceptual and practical foundations of an institutionalized practice of arms control in the region. Emily Landau demonstrates that if there is the will one day to break the Middle East logjam, there is a way.”
