The Palestine-Israel Conflict Summary

The Palestine-Israel Conflict: A Basic Introduction by Gregory Harms

The Palestine-Israel conflict is the most notorious and ingrained conflict in living memory. Yet the way it is reported in the media is often confusing, leading many to falsely assume the hostilities stretch continuously back to an ancient period.

The Palestine-Israel Conflict provides a balanced, accessible, and annotated introduction that covers the full history of the region, from Biblical times until today. Perfect for the general reader, as well as students, it offers a comprehensive yet lucid rendering of the conflict, setting it in its proper historical context. This fourth edition brings us up to date, and includes recent events such as Israel's Operation Protective Edge, developments between Fatah and Hamas, ongoing Palestinian resistance, and the entirety of the Obama years.

This book cuts though the layers of confused and contradictory information on the subject, and will help clarify the ongoing conflict for its readers.

The Palestine-Israel Conflict Reviews

'A tour de force in the depth and breadth of its research and in its clarity' -- Gabriel Kolko, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at York University in Toronto and author of The Age of War
'Gregory Harms has taken an enormously complex issue and made it engagingly accessible.

'An approachable, balanced guide for the perplexed public' -- Journal of Palestine Studies
