He is now working on a volume about regional security in the Middle East., and a reader for World Politics. In June 1995, Dr. Spiegel received the Karpf Peace Prize, which is awarded to the UCLA professor considered to have done the most of any faculty member during the previous two years for the cause of world peace. He was the recipient of the prestigious Pew Faculty Fellowship in International Affairs in 1993 and also served as the Chair of the Liberal Arts Committee of the Commission of Arms Control and Disarmament of the International Association of University Presidents/United Nations Commission on Arms Control Education from 1992 to 1996.

Professor Spiegel has also published in many well-known magazines and journals, including "The New Republic," "The National Interest," "Commentary," "Orbis," "Middle East Insight," "Middle East Quarterly," and "International Studies Quarterly." Spiegel's foreign policy reader, AT ISSUE: POLITICS IN THE WORLD ARENA, became the most popular of its kind in the United States, and was published in its seventh edition in the fall of 1993.
