Kennedy’s courting of Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt and Ahmed Ben Bella of Algeria and his relationship with North African Arab nationalism are examined in chapter six. The chapter focuses on Kennedy’s support of Algerian independence; his tilt toward Nasser’s brand of nationalism (which Kennedy saw as the wave of the future) vis-à-vis the Saudi monarchy, a complete reversal of Eisenhower’s position; and his effort to put the Palestinian issue “on ice” so as to find a balanced relationship between Israel and the Arab states.

Keywords:   Kennedy, Nasser, Ben Bella, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia
