Around the time of the creation of the state of Israel, a large number of Palestinian Arabs were displaced and became refugees. The Israeli and Palestinian narratives that describe how this came to pass are very different. So, what really happened? Morris tries to address this question through analysis of historical documents. This is another one of those books that I respect but wasn't able to read; the amount of detail was overwhelming, and even just reading the summaries proved to be a challenge.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521009677, Paperback)

Morris' earlier work exposed the realities of how 700,000 Palestinians became refugees during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. While the focus of this edition remains the war and exodus, new archival material considers what happened in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa, and how these events led to the collapse of urban Palestine. Revealing battles and atrocities that contributed to the disintegration of rural communities, the story is harrowing. The refugees now number four million and their cause remains a major obstacle to regional peace. First Edition Hb (1988): 0-521-33028-9 First Edition Pb (1989): 0-521-33889-1
