This book appeared to be just what I was looking for - where an educated person from either side of the conflict gives their perspective on the events which led to what we have today.
It all started well, with a reasonably balanced (albeit, slightly biased) view from the Israeli side which includes many facts, figures and well researched (with plenty of citations) information. The Palestinian perspective, sadly, was much more of a self-righteous stance, relying less on fact and more on opinion.
This book could have been much better, but it's still worth a read - if only for half it.
