Summary

Whether filtered through the news, the film industry, or the classroom, the Arab-Israeli conflict has become a pervasive--and often misinterpreted--subject on our contemporary cultural landscape. In this compelling text, David W. Lesch, a widely respected scholar and commentator on modernMiddle Eastern politics, presents the most balanced and accessible account of the conflict to date. The Arab-Israeli Conflict puts forth a variety of perspectives--along with concise and informative analyses--to enable and encourage students to form their own educated opinions about complex andcontroversial issues. Challenging yet not overwhelming, this appealingly slim volume focuses on key information, but also incorporates pedagogical features that help to enhance and expand students' understanding of the subject: * An extensive collection of relevant primary documents * Sidebars highlighting social and cultural history * A glossary of terms * A chronology for quick reference * Comprehensive illustrations, including 17 maps and 17 photos
