This book gives a comprehensive history of Palestine from the late 1800's up to 2008. The focus is on the State of Israel and the history and background helps to give a better understanding of the conflict in the Middle East. The reader can make up their own mind as to the rights and wrongs in the region, but at least after reading this book they will have some factual details upon which to base their assessment.

Highly readable account of the formation and history of the modern Israeli state. Unlike a lot of history books, I never felt bored or the desire to skip over any parts. The first hand accounts are very well chosen. Great insights into the thinking of the founders of the new Israeli nation. I can't think of anything I can fault with it.

Very scholarly and well written. Also well researched and filled with facts, some of them not readily available in other publications.
Most refreshing to read a modern History of Israel that is not highly critical but instead complimentary.

I cannot imagine a better book than this for anyone who wants to know about the history of Israel! Very well written, and seems to cover intensely and in great detail too! A masterpiece!

It's as you would expect a little bit heavy going but very detailed and full of information

I am a keen reader of historical texts but this is by far the best I have read. Not only does Dr Gilbert deal with the major historical figures but also the minor passers by.
