The Impact on the Arab World

  • Itamar Rábinovich

Abstract

The eight-year war between Iran and Iraq was in several respects an unprecedented event in the modern history of the Middle East. Wars had, of course, been fought in the region in earlier decades, but not a long full blown, albeit not total, war between two important regional powers. Arab-Israeli wars tended to be intensive but brief. The civil wars in Yemen and Lebanon developed into protracted crises involving other states but not into sustained inter-state wars.
