Review

"Lesch introduces the Arab-Israeli conflict to a general readership, framing it as a conflict between competing nationalisms. She provides a brief historical overview from the beginnings of Zionist immigration and presents chapters discussing the motivations and decisions of the major actors, including the US. Following this narrative, she presents short biographies of significant individuals, a collection of primary documents, a glossary of selected terms, and an annotate bibliography."

Format: Hardcover
This fine study of the Arab-Israeli conflict provides an overview of the main issues and events since Zionism and Arab nationalist aspirations began to collide in a Hundred Years War that is far from over. The book reflects on three principal themes: the shifts between ideology and pragmatism by both Arabs and Israelis, internal tensions within both sides over the nature of the conflict and ways to resolve it, and the part that external actors have played in bolstering ideological hard lines or encouraging pragmatic accommodation. In that sense, its theme is the interaction among the Arabs, Israelis, and third parties. With the exception of a weakness in the "external actors" and "third parties" element, as I will make clearer later, the end result is a successful combination of scholarship and exposition that turns this volume from being a university text to something much more. The book examines the Arab-Israeli conflict in a wide-ranging historical overview, and then by topical chapters. The first of the latter considers the growth of Zionism and Palestinian national feeling during British rule in the first half of the century, as the clash between the two peoples intensified. The succeeding sections look separately at the Israelis, Palestinians, and U.S. policy toward the Arab-Israeli conflict. Finally, the conclusion evaluates the current situation. A short photo essay in the middle of the book adds a small but engaging visual touch, with some fine captions.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book. It is an updated and extended version of the 1986 'Arab-Israeli Conflict' by Ian J Bickerton and M N Pearson. Valuable for the ongoing student of this subject. Not available for sale in Australia, in libraries only. A pity as valuable learning tool.
