I used this book to teach the Middle East conflict at GCSE level and found it excellent. It covers all the major problems like British rule in Palestine, Partition, the war of 1948-49, the Suez War 1956, the Six-Day War 1967, the Yom-Kippur War 1973,the situation of Palestinian refugees, the role of the PLO, the UN and the superpowers, the Intifada and the process of peacemaking. It provides first-class source material and pictures, as well as engaging analysis questions and activities for the text and the material. The book is clearly structured and has a very appealing layout. The students loved it and they learned a lot about an issue that has been one of the dominating world conflicts for the past 100 years. I would like to recommend this book to all interested students and teachers.

I used this book as a student at GCSE level in history and it covers all the topics required. But, on top of this, it's also very helpful for those simply wanting to understand the present day situations is Palestine and what caused the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

If you are a teacher looking to resource this topic, I would say this is the only book you'll need. Balanced, sensitive and thought provoking. Written so that students can engage- lots of sources and it builds student skills of interpretation and analysis.

when asked to get this for g-daughter history gcse, I thought poor kid... what a complex subject, just what was needed to put kid's off history... I was right. She now hates history and can't wait til end of summer and she'll never have to do history again.
Bingo.
