The Palestine-Israel conflict is the most notorious and ingrained conflict of the twentieth, and now twenty-first, century. Yet coverage of it in the media is often confusing, leading many to assume the hostilities stretch back to an
ancient period. The Palestine-Israel Conflict provides a clear, accessible, and annotated introduction that covers the full history of the region. Perfect for the general reader, as well as students, it offers a comprehensive account of the conflict, setting it in its proper historical context. Harms and Ferry show how today's violence is very much a product of twentieth century history. This balanced account is now fully up to date, including material on the
Israeli assault on the Gaza aid flotilla, and is invaluable for anyone who wants a clear guide to the conflict, and its place in the history of Middle Eastern affairs.
