This readable and comprehensive account of the Arab-Israeli conflict from its origins to the present contains a wealth of information, analysis and ready-reference materials. Designed for secondary school and college student research, it contains valuable essays explaining the history of the conflict and the positions of the parties, a timeline of events, biographical profiles of major players, and the text of key primary documents associated with the conflict. The authors, noted authorities on Middle East politics, have taken pains to provide a clear, factual and objective account of the conflict and its underlying issues. A glossary of terms and an annotated bibliography of recommended further reading should aid student research.
