 About the Book 

Although it traces the tangled and bitter history of the Arab-Jewish struggle from the turn of the century to the present, this atlas is not purely a document of war and conflict. It also shows the move towards peace through negotiation and proposals for agreed boundaries. Its clear, illuminating maps are accompanied by powerful and compelling quotations from those involved on both sides. It includes:* The Prelude and Background to the Conflict: from the siting of the Palestinian Jews before the Arab Conquest to the attitude of Britain to the Arabs between 1917 and 1971* The Jewish National Home: from the Zionist plan for Palestine in 1919 to the state of the Arab world between 1945 and 1962* The Intensification of the Conflict: from the immediate Arab response to the UN partition plan of 1947 to the first steps towards the independence of Israel in 1948* The State of Israel: from the Israeli War of Independence and the Six Day War to the horrific War of Yom Kippur and the Intifada* The Moves to Peace: from Camp David to the present day
