Nate Wooley, August 15, 2012 (view all comments by Nate Wooley)
I've been desperately looking for a book that gives an objective overview of the Zionist-Arab conflict. Seems like it would be easy, but given the intensity of the issue on either side (understandably so), even those touting to be a completely objective history tend to skew one way or the other. This book is DRY. However, it's exactly what is needed, an absolutely dry statement of historical fact, doing its best to present the points on both sides of the divide. It's worth trudging through the dusty history textbook quality of the writing to get a basis for understanding the conflict and how it affects politics today. If you have any interest in viewing media portrayal of the middle east with your critical thinking cap on, I would suggest this book.
