This unique atlas offers a balanced and comprehensive visual history of the age-old Arab-Israeli conflict, spanning from the early history of the region (c. 1,000 B.C.) to the foundation of the state of Israel, the Intifada, and the peace initiatives of the 1990s. Clear, informative, and accessible maps detail the course of major events, including the Balfour Declaration of 1917, the Six Day War, the October War, and the Arab world's reaction to the Camp David agreements, and offer useful insight into the social, political, military, and diplomatic dimensions of the current situation. Powerful and telling quotations from those involved on both sides and detailed annotations provide important historical background on this volatile conflict.
