This title examines the bitter conflict that has raged since 1948 when the state of Israel was created between the Arabs and the Israelis. The complexities of the Palestinian question are examined in a clear and non-partisan fashion. The author looks at the wide-ranging consequences of the conflict, from the plight of refugees to the intensification of the Cold War, and at the more recent peace initiatives and the on-going quest for a solution to the violence.
