  • The Arabs, 1967

    The flash war in the Middle East brought swift victory to the Israelis, humiliating defeat to the Arabs, but it has done little to settle the long-term issues in that part of the world. A leading American authority on the Arabs here tells why. Professor Badeau, director of the Middle East Institute at Columbia, lived in the Arab world from 1928 to 1953, and again from 1961 until mid-1964, when he was American Ambassador to the United Arab Republic. For seventeen years he was variously a professor, dean, and president at the American University in Cairo.
