Summary

Israeli historiography has long been subjected to a sustained assault by self-styled "new historians" vying to expose what they claim to be the distorted "Zionist narrative" of Israeli history and the Arab-Israeli conflict. They have cast Israel as the regional villain, bearing sole responsibility for the cycle of violence in the Middle east since 1946. This text takes issue with these "revisionists". The author argues that they have ignored or misinterpreted much documentation in developing their analysis of Israel's history. There are numerous in-depth studies to illustrate the author's argument.

Author Biography

Professor Efraim Karsh is Director of the Mediterranean Studies Programme at King's College, University of London, and editor of Israel Affairs.
