"In one movingly acknowledged respect, Shlaim has remained remarkably consistent over many years." Donald Macintyre, The Independent "One of the best and most illuminating accounts of Arab-Israeli relations in years." Foreign Affairs "Provides even the hardened student with some new perspectives. A valuable collection." The Economist "Erudite work" Will Podmore, Tribune "Not often today do we find historians who are this honest and this bleak and this able-for some reason, I think here of T. S. Eliot's essays-to express truth so simply." Robert Fisk, IndependentVom Verlag:
With characteristic rigor and readability, Avi Shlaim reflects on a range of key issues, transformations and personalities in the Israel-Palestine conflict. From the 1917 Balfour Declaration to the failure of the Oslo peace process, from the 1948 War to the 2008 invasion of Gaza, "Israel and Palestine" places current events in their proper historical perspective. "Israel and Palestine" assesses the impact of key political and intellectual figures, including Yasir Arafat and Ariel Sharon, Edward Said and Benny Morris; it also re-examines the United States' influential role in the conflict, and explores the many missed opportunities for peace and progress in the region. Clear-eyed and meticulous, "Israel and Palestine" is an essential tool for understanding the fractured history and future prospects of Israel-Palestine.
