WASHINGTON, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Daniel Morgan Graduate School Professor Dr. Michael Sharnoff released his first book titled Nasser's Peace: Egypt's Response to the 1967 War with Israel.
Published by Taylor and Francis Group, the book chronicles the post-war response and strategy of then Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser following his country's Six-Day War with Israel. Using newly declassified documents, Dr. Sharnoff provides a closer, behind the scenes look at both Nasser's public and private "peace negotiations" in the months directly following the 1967 War.
"Although much has been written on Nasser and the 1967 War, Nasser's Peace is unique because it draws upon more recently available primary resources," said Sharnoff. "These newly declassified documents from the United States, Great Britain, and Russia give light to Nasser's diplomatic negotiations following the war, which up to this point have remained relatively unexamined and misunderstood."
Dr. Sharnoff joined the Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security as an Associate Professor of Middle Eastern Studies in May 2015. He also serves as Daniel Morgan's Director of Regional Studies and is a Senior Analyst at Wikistrat, a geo-political risk consultancy firm in Washington, D.C. Dr. Sharnoff completed his Ph.D. in Middle East Studies at King's College London and is a renowned commentator on Middle Eastern rhetoric. His work has been published in outlets that include The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and Palestine-Israel Journal.
With the 50th anniversary of the 1967 War this year, Nasser's Peace is a timely and thought-provoking analysis of how a smaller, developing country can manipulate larger, rival countries and how the definition of "peace" can be easily molded.
"[This is a] brilliant examination of the twilight years of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, arguably the foremost Arab leader in the 20th century," said Professor Efraim Karsh, King's College London & Bar-Ilan University. "[Nasser's Peace is a] must read for anyone seeking to understand the endemic volatility of the Arab world and its failure to come to terms with modernity."
"Never before has a book delved into this level of detail on the subject," Sharnoff said. "I'm thankful to be able to share these new revelations with our students at Daniel Morgan Graduate School and readers across the world."
Nasser's Peace is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Dr. Sharnoff will present on Nasser's Peace at the Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security in Washington, D.C. on May 10. You can register for the event on Daniel Morgan's website.
