The Arab-Israeli Conflict, Third Edition
The Arab-Israeli conflict is one of the most stubborn problems of the post-war era. The partition of Palestine resulted in the creation of the State of Israel, and of the Palestine refugee problem. The dispute has resulted in major regional wars and two Palestinian Intifadas with tragedies on both sides. Throughout, there have been repeated attempts to resolve the conflict, from Bernadotte in 1948 through to President George W. Bush's roadmap in 2003.
This successful text sets out the basic arguments on each side of the conflict, and traces their evolution, examining in detail the key issues and events. Now thoroughly updated and incorporating the latest research, the new edition follows the story from October 2003 to the present day, taking into account:
- the death of Yasser Arafat
- the implications of the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza
- the realignment of Israeli politics under Ariel Sharon
- Hamas's electoral victory in 2006
- the recent fighting in Lebanon
- tensions between Fatah and Hamas.
