Description

In this concise yet comprehensive survey, Kirsten E. Schulze analyzes the causes, course and consequences of the Arab-Israeli conflict, exploring the particular dynamics of this conflict and the numerous attempts at its resolution. Covering pivotal events ranging from the creation of the State of Israel to the first and second Lebanon Wars and the Arab Spring, the book traces the development of the conflict from its intellectual roots in the nineteenth century to the present day.





This third edition has been revised throughout to bring the text up to date


with recent events, including:





* a completely new chapter on the Gaza Wars from 2006 to 2014

* an updated discussion of the ongoing negotiations for peace.





Containing a diverse collection of primary source documents, a chronology of key dates, a glossary, a guide to further reading and a Who's Who summarizing the careers and contributions of the main figures, this book is essential to understanding the background to and worldwide significance of the continuing violence between Israel and Palestine and is valuable reading for all students of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Review quote

"Kirsten Schulze has produced a comprehensive and concise account that is highly recommended. The Arab-Israeli Conflict provides a sweeping overview from the origins of Zionism and Arab nationalism to Israel's 2014 invasion of Gaza and the stalled peace process. Written in an engaging and accessible style with maps, key documents, and a glossary of terms, it is an ideal text for introductory and advanced undergraduate courses."


Osamah Khalil, Syracuse University, USA


"Complete with appropriately selected documents, maps, a chronology and a handy who's who guide, Kirsten Schulze has delivered a comprehensive yet precise, balanced and digestible guide to the history of the Arab-Israeli Conflict from the rise of Zionism to the rise and fall of the peace process as well as more recent conflagrations. Essential reading for students of history, politics, Middle Eastern Studies and conflict resolution."
