HASH(0xa1ab7858) étoiles sur 5 Balanced 11 juin 2002
Par Matthew Lieberman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I searched for 2 weeks for a book that would fairly present both sides of the Israeli-Palistinian debate and probably most of you are in the same boat - feeling too ignorant about something too important. Tessler presents such a balanced view that 400 pages into the book I can't tell if he believes either side is "in the right." The book makes clear why both sides have reasons to call this land their own and also makes clear that both sides have engaged in less than moral tactics to stake their claim and drive out the other side. You may not come away knowing who is right but at least you'll have a sense of why the middle east is how it is today.

HASH(0xa1ab7aa4) étoiles sur 5 A Fair and Detailed Account 18 mars 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Too often the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict gets distorted by those who are too attached to one side or the other and twist the history to fit their agenda. They often fail to admit the tragedies they have inflicted on the other side and demonized their opponents' motives. Mark Tessler does an excellent job of presenting a fair and balanced history of the conflict and of avoiding these pitfalls. What is great about this book is that it not only details the actually events but discusses the ideologies and the political constraints facing both sides. I felt like I didn't just learn history, but also learned why each side made the decisions they did. I hope Professor Tessler is considering making an updated edition.

HASH(0xa1ab7e34) étoiles sur 5 An Extraordinary Achievement 10 octobre 2001
Par Dr. Jud Newborn - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What subject could be more complex, and the telling of its history more liable to political bias and encumberance, than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? One must be extremely diligent and capable of independent critical analysis to find one's way through the warring literature on this subject, whether from right, left or center. Mark Tessler's is the most objective, scrupulous, balanced--and therefore most humane--detailed history of this conflict that I have seen. I cannot imagine why it hasn't had more attention. It should, in fact, be on the required reading list of everyone concerned about this conflict. If only its findings and approach could sink into popular consciousness, it might provide an antidote for violence and blind rage, as well as for politically or intellectually-motivated self-righteousness. It should be widely translated, and available in both Arabic and Hebrew.

HASH(0xa1ab7e28) étoiles sur 5 An outstanding book 22 novembre 2002
Par Digital Puer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It has taken me several months to finish off this huge book, but the experience of learning so much has been very rewarding. This is quite simply the best nonfiction book I've ever read, and this on a topic as complex as the Middle East conflict, no less. Tessler's work is completely unbiased and offers an incredibly detailed presentation of the facts up to Fall 1993, after the Oslo accords were announced.
Tessler, an American professor, writes in a straight-forward style that is easily understandable. Although the sheer volume of history covered in the book was considerable, I never found myself bored by the writing. I wish my high school history books were written so well.
Like a good academian (in the very best sense of the term), he presents the facts clearly. For each historical event, he cites several credible sources stating the event, and for retrospective analysis of its importance, he cites opinions from multiple sides. The build-up to the 1967 war, for example, consumes 20 pages and 50 citations. His use of references is so thorough that of the book's 900+ pages, 93 pages are endnotes.
I only have a few minor negative remarks about this book:
1. Obviously, since the book was published in 1994, it is not up to date and does not cover the break-down of the negotiations from the Oslo accords. However, historical facts prior to 1993 have not changed (at least not in the Orwellian sense, thank goodness), and this book does an outstanding job for its time frame as I have said.
2. There are no photos at all, save for the picture on the cover.
3. For a topic so centered on geography, the quality of the maps is surprisingly poor. There are 20 maps showing the important boundaries and such, but these look like they were drawn by a high school art student. A single high-detail, atlas-quality map from 1994 would have been appropriate as well. Instead, I found some colour maps on the web that I printed out and keep folded in the book to use as a quick reference.
A much more recent book that I also highly recommend that covers these three points (recentness, photos, and maps) is _The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Crisis in the Middle East_ by Reuters journalists. That book is filled with beautiful photography, nice maps, and is up-to-date to March 2002. It makes a great companion to this book.
Overall, this book by Tessler is outstanding. Although its size may be a bit daunting, you will thank yourself for reading this book.

HASH(0xa1abd1e0) étoiles sur 5 Introduction to the problems 26 janvier 2004
Par Alessandro Bruno - Publié sur
Format: Broché
if you have the time, you can do worse than to read this valuable volume on the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The book looks at the rise of nationalism among both peoples, the Palestinians developing their identity forst as Arabs during the 19th century and under Ottoman occupation and the Israelis as an extension of euroepan nationalism and their initial attempts at assimilation. In fact, I found the description of the rise of Zionism to be one of the most fascinating aspects of the book. This book works very well, therefore, in explaining the background of the conflict presenting all sides. I could not really detect a bias, as I could certainly find plenty of arguments taht selectively and logically assembled could be used to support either side. Moral considerations of justice are excluded, and individual readers wilkl necessarily have to fit those in. I therefore recommend reading this volume before approaching the more slanted ones. I certainly know where I stand on the issue, but I understand the other side more and that can't hurt when I argue in favor of Palestinian self determination.
