"This is history as narrative, told with the skill of a trained story-teller. The product is literature. This is good news for both the specialist and for the general reader."--"Jerusalem Post"
"This book sheds new light on Israeli relations with France, Britain, and the United States before and after the Suez crisis. The author uses an impressive array of documents which have been released by the various governments and is able to employ them in a staggeringly detailed and comprehensive fashion."--Steven L. Spiegel, University of California, Los Angeles
"In this well-written and concise volume, Israeli scholar Zach Levey not only recounts Israel's quest for a firm patron-client relationship in the 1950s, but also describes what Israeli leaders sought to gain from such a relationship and what they thought they had to contribute to it."--"Diplomacy & Statecraft"
"A very readable and well-constructed study. Levey has made good use of newly released official documentation (and such new sources as Ben-Gurion's diaries) to make an important new contribution to the history of the formulation of Israeli foreign policy in the 1950s."--"British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies"
