The Israel-Arab Reader: A Documentary History of the Middle East Conflict Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential resource?completely revised and updated for the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of Israel

In print for forty years , The Israel-Arab Reader is a thorough and up-to-date guide to the continuing crisis in the Middle East. It covers the full spectrum of the Israel-Arab conflict?including a new chapter recounting the Gaza withdrawal, the Hamas election victory, and the Lebanon-Israel War. Featuring a new introduction that provides an overview of the past 115 years of conflict, and arranged chronologically and without bias, this comprehensive reference includes speeches, letters, articles, timelines, and reports dealing with all the major interests in the area.

Book News Annotation:

With a title characterizing the conflict as between a country and a people, the collection of documents presents a particular interpretation of history in Palestine over the past century, up to a supposed end of prospects for resolution because of the actions of displaced people. The arrangement is chronological, in sections covering from the Bilu to the British Mandate's end, from Israel's independence through the 1973 war's aftermath, from Camp David through the Madrid Conference, the apparent approach of peace, and conflict renewed. There is no index. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
