This is the first work of its kind to specifically examine the use of the United States veto in the United Nations Security Council in reference to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Thus, the book fills the void in the histiography and it provides interested parties with a new way of examining a conflict that has recently entered its ninth decade since the publication of the Balfour Declaration.
