With the Arab-Israeli Conflict: A History with Documents, David Lesch, a widely respected university scholar and commentator on modern Middle Eastern politics, presents the most balanced and accessible account of the conflict to date. The book presents a variety of perspectives, along with concise and informative analysis, enabling students to make informed and educated assessments of issues that for one reason or another are subjects of debate and controversy. Though it is shorter than most other books on the topic, The Arab-Israeli Conflict contains primary documents, photographs, maps, in-text sidebars or boxes covering aspects of social and cultural history, a chronology for quick reference, suggested readings, and a glossary. This book is the perfect choice for a core text in courses on the Conflict, and an excellent supplementary text for Modern Middle East more
