Timely ... an impressive work, scholarly, balanced and searching ... Morris lets the facts speak for themselves (The Observer)
There can be nothing but praise for Dr Morris's latest book ... makes uncomfortable reading, but is nevertheless of fundamental importance for understanding the evolution of Israeli policy and the attitude of the major powers, particularly Britain and the United States (Jewish Chronicle)
Morris analyses effectively the interplay between different Israeli decision-making authorities, military and civilian, local and central ... this book confirms and lends depth to the authoritative picture of the Arab exodus in Morris's previous work ... Morris's works provide the fullest, best documented, and most fair-minded examination of the subject yet published. They are likely to remain the standard works on the topic for the foreseeable future. (Mediterranean Historical Review) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
This revised and updated paperback edition of a highly successful study looks at the development of Israel-Arab relations during the formative years 1949 to 1956, focusing on Arab infiltration into Israel and Israeli retaliation. Palestinian refugee raiding and cross-border attacks by Egyptian-controlled irregulars and commandos were a core phenomenon during this period and one of the chief causes of Israel's invasion of Egypt in 1956. This pioneering study, which has been expanded on the basis of much new, and recently declassified material from the IDF, deepens our understanding of the current situation in the Middle East, and of the prospects for a lasting peace there. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
