Reviews

"After many years seeing and reading about the Israel-Palestine conflict in the media and not quite understanding what it was about I decided to do some research. This book is perfect for that goal. It has a short question-answer format which clarifies the main points around this issue. It looks at the historical context, reasons behind the dispute, possible solutions and failed peace plans, other major countries involved in the dispute and future plans to resolve the conflict. It is very clearly written and leaves you with a greater understanding of this complex and on-going dispute. I'd highly recommend this for those who wish to know more about Israel-Palestine and middle east conflict." - Amazon Customer Review (5 Stars).
