The Israel-Palestine Conflict: One Hundred Years of War

The Israel-Palestine Conflict: One Hundred Years of War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James L. Gelvin's new account of the century-old conflict between Israelis and Palestinians presents a compelling, accessible and up-to-the-moment introduction for students and general readers. Placing events in the disputed area within the framework of global history, the book skillfully interweaves biographical sketches, eyewitness accounts, poetry, fiction and official documentation into its narrative, including photographs, maps and an abundance of supplementary material as well. Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century in Palestine, it traces the evolution and interactions of the two communities from their first encounters up to the present conflict.

Book News Annotation:

Gelvin (history, U. of California at Los Angeles) frames his narrative of the Israel-Palestine and conflict as essentially the story of two competing and equally valid nationalisms. His account, which brings the story up to 2004, incorporates discussion of pertinent international politics and does not neglect the essential issues of land expropriations by Israeli settlers and the Israeli state and the status of Palestinian refugees, including maps that help to illustrate the complex nature of these questions.

Synopsis:

The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has lasted over a century. James L. Gelvin's account of that conflict, from the first glimmerings of national consciousness among Jews and Ottoman Palestinians to the present, offers a compelling, accessible and up-to-the-moment introduction for students and general readers. The book makes no attempt to be encyclopaedic in coverage. It is interpretive, with a thematically composed introduction, and set within the framework of global history.

Synopsis:

An engaging, interpretive, thematically composed introduction to this intractable conflict for students and general readers.
