Book News
This book begins with an essay giving a comprehensive overview of the origins, history and continuing adversarial relationship between Arabs and Israelis. Another essay briefly lays out the causes of the conflict, and a third describes consequences through 2013. Then follows the largest part, an encyclopedia of people, events, nations, locales (e.g., Gaza Strip), political actors (e.g., Hamas, Hezbollah) and even ideas (Zionism) involved in the conflict. Bibliographical references trail each entry. Entries are written in an essentially chronological mode, and include events through the Arab Spring, wherever relevant. After the encyclopedia, the editor has made a selection of primary source documents. An appendix touches on historical dilemmas: the right to Palestine, U.S. Support of Israel, and defining military maneuvers. There is also a detailed chronology, from antiquity through the present.
