American Policy Toward Israel: the power and limits of beliefs

LSE public lecture


Most scholars explain America’s nearly unconditional support of Israel either as a result of inordinate influence by a small pro-Israel lobby or as the product of strategic choices by presidents. Studies of the Reagan and first Bush administrations demonstrate a more useful way to understand American policy and to predict when it might change. That method involves analysing how policy advocates redefine, institutionally embed, and enforce versions of long-standing American beliefs favourable to their preferred policies, and under what conditions those efforts are less effective.

Michael Thomas served as director of Robertson Monagle and Eastaugh Law Practice from 1971 to 1994. This event marks the publication of his new book American Policy Toward Israel: the power and limits of beliefs.
