Whether irony can bear the functions assigned to it here is doubtful. Carole R. Fontaine Andover Newton Theological School Eisenhower and Israel: U.S.-Israeli Relations, 1953-1960, by Isaac Alteras. Gainesville: University Press of Florida, 1993. 405 pp. $44.95 (c); $19.95 (P). The special relationship between the United States and Israel remains among the most important and interesting of those between a superpower and a small state of regional significance. Although a number of studies have examined this linkage, some in great detail, the Eisenhower period has, hitherto, not been subjected to the thoroughness of treatment that Professor Isaac Alteras provides in this informative diplomatic history. The United States-Israel relationship began on a positive note in the Truman administration. Thus, there were questions and concerns when Eisenhower, relatively unknown as a political figure, took office. Throughout his memoirs, Eisenhower refers to United States neutrality (he writes of the United States as an "objective friend") in the Arab-Israeli conflict and focuses on the Tripartite Declaration of 1950 as an example of impartiality in opposing both an arms race and aggression
