Good background for starting discussions on the conflict 27 août 2006
Par Rajesh S. Raghavan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"History of the Arab-Israeli" conflict appears to be a balanced primer into the Arab-Israeli conflict. One strength of the book are the relevant documents presented at the end of each chapter. The book concentrates more on breadth than depth, but each chapter also ends with a list of references for further reading, for those who wish to learn more details about a particular issue.

This is an educational textbook. However, it can serve as background material for anybody or any group that wishes to become more knowledgeable about the topic and who wish to examine the topics further through classroom or private discussion.

The book attempts to maintain a balanced perspective without favoring either the Arab or Israeli point of view. Hence, those who are pre-disposed to favoring one side or the other are bound to find the book "biased" or "incomplete", or perhaps "mixing lies with truth" which was a title of one of the reviews for the 4th Edition. Because the text only covers the issues in general terms, without going into too much detail, it is hard to say who is correct--the book, trying to remain imparital, or partisans on one side or the other.

Overall, I would recommend this book as a useful introduction to the Arab-Israel Conflict for those who are not already knowledgeable, who seek to learn more about the issues in the conflict.

A very reliable history 18 juillet 2010
Par Repps Hudson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As an adjunct professor of international affairs at a top-tier university, I have used History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict by Ian Bickerton and Carla Klausner for several years and through several of its recent editions. When I began teaching this class, after many years of writing editorials on the conflict for two major American newspapers and several reporting trips to the region, I was looking for a book that brought together the essential documents regarding the founding of the state of Israel in 1948 and the period since.
So many times, people have made up their minds as to which side -- Israeli, Arab -- is the blame for the entire situation. Some automaticlaly blame Israel; others criticize the Arab states and the Palestinians.
For my purposes, that was much too simplistic an approach. I wanted students to read and understand the historical narrative of this conflict. I wanted them to read the documents from the United Nations, the Arab League, the Israeli governnment and so on so they could gain a useful appreciation of the complexity of this situation today.
This text does the trick. It is balanced, and that is why I find it so helpful.
I ask my students at the beginning of each semester to examine their own thoughts as to which parties they believe are to blame for the conflict. Then, as we are wrapping up the course, I ask them to revisit that question.
My goal is to help them understand as completely as possible how complicated this conflict is and why.
The Bickerton-Klausner text does an excellent job simply because it refuses to assign blame to one side or the other, which is exactly what I wanted to get away from in my course. There is enough blame to go around quite sufficiently.
Even though there are other texts out now that appear to mimic this approach, I shall continue to use this text. It is invaluable for me.

As objective as you can get 16 mars 2013

For such a complicated conflict, the editors do a phenomenal job presenting as objective an account as possible. They write well, making a potentially dense and redundant text quite digestible (and certainly enjoyable for readers interested in history).

Must have book for Israel Palestine enthusiasts 30 janvier 2013
Par Tim O - Publié sur

Very in depth book about the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict, lots of pictures and maps and other stuff that complement the reading very well. Would recommend even if you aren't a poly sci student and just looking to gain more knowledge of the region.

I highly recommend this book for every American that can read 7 décembre 2014
Par antoinette j. boyer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Because of 2 other books that I read, "Infidel" and "The Faith Club" I decided to read this one. I had a very general idea of what was happening in Israel and did not support what the Jews were doing with their push on Jewish settlements. Until I read this book and had a very thorough presentation of all of the documentation of inhumanity on a daily basis I had no idea that the Arabs were so ill-treated and have been for so many years. This book has been a very enlightening time for me. I laud the author for such specific information and so well documented. The author covers all sides equally and well. I highly recommend this book for every American that can read. If we read "One Palestine Complete", "How Israel Lost" and this book maybe we would make a difference in actions and the voting booth. This is not an easy book to read for the inhumane treatment of the Arabs is difficult to receive and the documented statements of those in Jewish power are ugly and difficult to comprehend from a well-educated and very bright culture.
