The Palestine Israel Conflict,
This review is from: Palestine-Israel Conflict: A Basic Introduction (Paperback)
Impressive. This book effectively sums up the history of the said conflict, and indeed the wider Middle East as far back as 3300 BC - some feat considering it is little over 180 pages! On offer is a very good level of detail (considering it is a 'basic' introduction), especially of recent (post-1948) events. Having read the book, the sheer futility of the ongoing conflict becomes apparent - the number of (failed) negotiations between the various parties over the years, is astounding. Furthermore, having considered other reviews of this title, I feel that accusations of pro-Palestinian bias are unfounded (I would consider myself pro-Israeli) - the author paints a largely fair picture of events. Thoroughly recommended.
