The Israel/Palestine Question

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1999 - History - 278 pages
The Israel/Palestine Question assimilates diverse interpretations of the origins of the Middle East conflict with emphasis on the fight for Palestine and its religious and political roots. Drawing largely on scholarly debates in Israel during the last two decades, which have become known as 'historical revisionism', the collection presents the most recent development in the historiography of the Arab-Israeli conflict and a critical reassessment of Israel's past.
