On March 16, the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings hosted a discussion to launch a new book by Distinguished Fellow Itamar Rabinovich, entitled, “Middle Eastern Maze: Israel, the Arabs, and the Region 1948-2022″ (Brookings Institution Press, 2023). In this book Rabinovich, a senior academic historian who served as Israel’s ambassador to the United States and as a peace negotiator with Syria, has provided an expanded and updated version of his 2012 book “The Lingering Conflict.”

In this online event, the speakers discussed the Arab-Israeli relationship in the larger context of Middle Eastern regional and international politics, examining new dynamics such as Iran and Turkey’s new roles in the region, the Abraham Accords, the full-fledged Syrian civil war, and the lengthy domestic political crisis in Israel.
