PH.D. DISSERTATION ABSTRACT
Israeli, Ofer, Realist Theory of International Outcomes (Ph.D. Dissertation: University of Haifa, Israel, 2007) [Hebrew].
In my doctoral dissertation I developed the Realist Theory of International Outcomes. The study deals with the systemic forces that circuitously and indirectly cause two significant but unexpected outcomes in world politics: the stability of international systems and the territorial outcomes of polar powers’ wars. The research study covers the years 1816-2006, and it deals with all the wars in which the polar powers were involved during this time period.

M.A. THESIS ABSTRACT
Israeli, Ofer, The Relation between Military Results and Political Outcomes (Unpublished M.A. dissertation: The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, 2002) [Hebrew].
My M.A. thesis deals with the theoretic subject of The Relation between Military Results & Political Outcomes. The main argument of the study is that under the bipolar system of the Cold War era, a small country which initiated a local war would achieve its political goals when they matched the superpowers’ balance-of-interests, with no connection to the military results of the war: i.e., victory or defeat in the war by the country that initiated it.
