Synopsis

Providing impartial documentation and background information on Arab-Israeli relations from 1947 to 2001, this volume includes maps, a bibliography and details of the events, personalities and issues that surround the subject.

Excerpt

This is the first edition of a new title in Europa’s range of international reference books, documenting the principal events in one of the most intractable and long-running international disputes in the contemporary world. the book aims to provide a comprehensive and impartial review of the events that have shaped the Arab-Israeli dispute in the period between the end of the British Mandate in Palestine and the present. Europa’s standing as a current-affairs publisher throughout this period enables it to provide a unique record of the region’s events.

The five sections comprising this book aim to approach the issues in such a way as to present the reader with more than one perspective on a particular topic. a chronology of the period gives a record of events with an important bearing on the subject matter. the second section, an essay compiled over time by a number of academics and writers on Middle Eastern affairs, attempts to detail events from 1967-2001 in a more analytical context. the third part, Documents on Palestine, reproduces the texts of a number of letters, treaties and agreements that have arisen from the Arab-Israeli dispute, and illustrates a number of these with maps. Fourthly, a series of profiles of the most prominent political figures in Arab-Israeli relations in the period concerned permits the reader to understand the personalities involved. Lastly, a bibliography provides further reading on the subject and closely related topics.

At a time when the prospect of a durable peace in the region appears more remote than for some years, and references are frequently made to earlier events in the history of Arab-Israeli Relations, it is hoped that this book will prove a significant and impartial addition to the body of published material on the subject.
