Description
This collection includes reports, memoranda, dispatches, microfilm, and printed matter, relating to relations between the United States and Israel since 1948, and information regarding Israeli relations with other nations. Among these documents include materials directly related to the Israeli naval and air attack on the U.S.S. Liberty on 8 June 1967 and other military incidents with direct or indirect ties to the Israeli military and defensive forces. These materials were used as research material for the books by Stephen Green, Taking Sides: America's Secret Relations with a Militant Israel (1984) and Living by the Sword: America and Israel in the Middle East (1988).
Background
Prior to writing his first book on American-Israeli relations, Stephen Green (born May 22, 1940) had been working a field director in Somalia for Oxfam Inc., an international famine relief organization. In his own words, his work there as a relief coordinator led him to decide to write about the United States' and Israel's relationship. His first book on the topic, Taking Sides: America's Secret Relations with a Militant Israel was published in 1984 and the second book, Living by the Sword: America and Israel in the Middle East was published in 1988. Alongside these works, Green has also written other articles regarding the complex relations between the United States and Israel. As a freelance journalist, he continues to write and speak on affairs and policies regarding Israel and the Middle East.
