The monograph is devoted to complicated history of establishing cooperation between Israel and USA after the State of Israel came into being in 1948 till 2014. The author considers the “cold war” period when Israeli leaders fought for their country’s recognition as a partner of the USA, promoting their role as a proxy for American interests in the Middle East. The author states that at the end of 1990s the development of Israeli-American relations turned out into strategical partnership, and Israel became the most privileged non-aligned ally of the USA. This status is remained unchanged even now because strategical relations between the USA and Israel are of geopolitical and ideological character. The researcher estimates the events of the period since the end of 1990s till 2014 – the stage of further development of mutual relations after the end of “cold war”. The book is recommended for experts in international studies, students and postgraduates, dealing with the problems of the Middle East, as well as for a wide readership.
