Lavi: The United States, Israel and a Controversial Fighter Jet

By John W. Golan


Synopsis

Endorsed by President Reagan on the White House lawn on November 29, 1983, and opposed by his own Secretary of Defense, the Lavi became the largest bi-national program in the history of U.S.-Israel relations.

Aimed at providing Israel with a fighter-bomber uniquely suited to Israel’s requirements, the Lavi became a microcosm for both the U.S.-Israel relationship, and for Israeli society itself: a study in the ambitions, fears, and internal divisions that have shaped each of them.

The story behind this landmark program is scheduled for publication in January 2016, and is available now for pre-order.
