No matter whether readers are pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian - or somewhere in between - it is crucial for us to understand the history of the conflict. This book covers the disputes and peace treaties, the US and international intervention, and the reasons why the Middle East has always been the most disputed territory in the world.
This edition will bring the conflict up-to-date, covering Ariel Sharon's visit to Haram al-Sharif, the failure of the Camp David summit in 2000, the most recent intifada and the current wave of suicide bombings, the confinement of Yasser Arafat in his Ramallah headquarters, the effect of September 11 on the conflict, and more.
This revision also includes more information on the Arab nations of the Middle East and the Palestinian side of the conflict.
