The Unnatural Alliance by James Adams
A powerful influence emerged on the world scene involving two of the world's most improbably allies: Israel, a state founded by a people in flight from racism, and South Africa, a state founded on ideas of racial superiority. James Adams gives the first detailed account of this strange alliance. He shows how, for very different reasons, the two states became increasingly estranged from the international community and in their isolation found new and unexpected common interests. Israel supplied South Africa with vital help in military and espionage matters, and the two countries forged close links in the arms trade, economic development and nuclear programs. But, most bizarre of all, this alliance won them new friends in black Africa.
