Format: Paperback
With a subject like this it would be very easy to takes sides and an author must be cautious, Stewart Ross did a fine job with this book. Both sides are presented fairly, the history is explained well and my knowledge has increased profoundly since reading this. I admit, before I read it I thought I knew what the conflict was all about, now I know its a lot more complex and deeper than I thought.
My only gripe was the fact that I found myself re-reading some lines over and over to get into my head what the writer was saying (but maybe that's just me) and there are a few spelling mistakes and unclosed brackets. (Like this...

Well worth the read if you want to know all about what's going on in the middle easy and why.

Format: Paperback
A must read for those who want to read an objective narrative of the longdrawn out drama of our times. The facts, figures and the quotes are excellent alongwith txts of historical documents whereever necessary. Above all, I liked the linguistic style of the writer who has a grip on the flow of apt words at appropriate places. Having read a dozen books on the subject this seemed the best one. Probably because author has served somewhere in the Middle East in academia and observed things from different perspectives.

A very fair and well written account, beyond my expectations of a 'Teach Yourself' book, filling a large hole in public knowledge of the conflict.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent history, but biased delivery 9 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Biased. Very good overview of the history, but with a strong anti-Israeli slant that creeps up slowly over the course of the book, and detracts from its assets. Adjectives describing Israeli actions are consistently negative, whereas those describing Arabs' are apologetic. Numbers are skewed slightly, with the same effect. Also, unqualified assumptions are made concerning the intentions of the participants, resulting in virtual ad hominem attacks. It's a shame, because the plight of the Palestinians is deserving of significant attention in a book like this, but I have a difficult time digesting such biased writing, especially done in such an adroit way. Once again, a decent overview, but caveat emptor.
