Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0340943254, Paperback)

"Teach Yourself The Israeli - Palestinian Conflict" is the essential guide to one of the world's most distressing confrontations. Putting the present situation into its broader context and examining all perspectives, it unravels the origins and development of issues which make the headlines daily. Stewart Ross begins by going back to the 'very beginning' - setting the geographical, religious, ethnic and social scene - all essential to understand a modern conflict with Biblical roots. He then tells the 'story' of the conflict through the twentieth and twenty-first century, each chapter uncovering a major event or period. From the British inter-war mandate over Palestine and the establishment of Israel (1948) to the Six-Day War (1967), Yom Kippur (1973) and Camp David (1979), to the two Intifadas (1987, 2000) and the countless attempted settlements, this book will give you a comprehensive understanding of the developments that have led to recent events such as the 2006 Israeli-Hezbollah War and suicide bombings. Each aspect of this complex conflict is explained with engaging objectivity which will ensure you soon understand the issues from all perspectives and in a social, political, historical and international framework.
