Book Description

10 July 2008 0582771897 978-0582771895 2

In this fully revised new edition, Kirsten Schulze brings us to a new understanding of the causes, course and consequences of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Schulze analyses the dynamics of the violence and explores the numerous attempts at resolving the conflict. She assesses why, in the cases of Israel-Egypt in 1978 and Israel-Jordan in 1994, negotiations succeeded in bringing about a lasting peace and why, in the cases of Israel, and the Palestinians, Syria and Lebanon, they failed to do so. Written in a clear and accessible style, this fully updated second edition:

·         Traces the origins of the conflict from their first intellectual roots in the 19th century.

·         Examines the actions and aims of the competing nationalist movements during the  period of the British Mandate which led to the creation of the state of Israel.

·         Outlines and analyses each of the Arab-Israeli conflicts from the creation of the state of Israel in 1948  to the 2006 Lebanon war and the on-going, second Palestinian uprising

With a diverse collection of documents and a Chronology, Glossary, Guide to Further Reading, and a Who’s Who summarizing the careers and contributions of the main figures, this book is absolutely vital to understanding the current Israeli-Palestinian violence, the intra-Palestinian rift between Hamas and Fatah, and why the Arab-Israeli conflict has become the centre of Muslim politics, both violent and non-violent, across the world.

By A.E.
Format:Paperback
Dr Schulze has penned an excellent account of the history of the Arab-Israeli Conflict. She has managed to masterly compress such a detailed subject into an easy and short read. Unlike many books on the Arab-Israeli Conflict, which contain an abundance of bias towards one side, Dr Schulze has written a balanced and succinct account from an objective perspective. Anyone new and/or interested in this protracted conflict must add this book to their reading list.

Format:Paperback
This is a very thorough, well-researched and impartial book on a very delicate topic and as a teacher I have found it an outstanding resource in terms of my lesson preparation. At the same time, this series is primarily aimed at the undergraduate market and as a classroom teacher, my A-Level / IB History students found it quite hard work due to what they found to be too many distracting academic references in the form of [Smith 1997, page 2] for even very straightforward statements about the topic. As a core text I therefore use the Scott-Baumann book from the "Access to History" series, and then complement it with this book for extension activities. The two books together work very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good history of the middle east conflict 24 May 2011
By 24_Laura VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I used this book for my A2 history coursework on the Middle East conflict. I found it a very good basis for me to gain understanding of the mains events of the period before doing further reading for more depth. The inclusion of primary documents in the back of the book was also highly helpful to quote from in my essays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good primer. 13 April 2000
By Gary Malone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Summarised in just under 100 pages, this is a good read for anyone looking for a brief overview of the conflict. It doesn't do much editorialising, though - so if you're looking for a strong, penetrating view from a heavyweight, this is really more chronicle than commentary. Excellent start, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to the Arab-Israeli conflict 27 Jun 2006
By J. Brandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Schulze's book is not an in depth look at the problems in the Arab-Israeli issue, but is a good introduction to how the problems grew quickly starting in the late 19th century. The main points of conflict discussed briefly with various documents also being included in the back of the text to help you get a better idea of some of the treaties and agreements that have been used starting with the Balfour Agreement.

It's a quick read and will help anyone learn more about the current conflict and the roots of how the conflict began.
