Great Analysis. May 5, 2011
Overall, I would recommend this text book as a useful introduction to the Arab-Israel Conflict for those who are not already knowledgeable, who seek to learn more about the issues in the conflict. The text book concentrates more on breadth than depth, but each chapter also ends with a list of references for further reading, for those who wish to learn more details about a particular issue. The text book attempts to maintain a balanced perspective without favoring either the Arab or Israeli point of view. I ordered this textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.
