Overview

The Routledge Atlas of the Arab-Israeli Conflict traces not only the tangled and bitter history of the Arab-Jewish struggle from the early twentieth century to the present, including the death of Yasser Arafat and recent proposals for territorial settlement, it also illustrates the move towards finding peace and the efforts to bring the horrors of the fighting to an end through negotiation and proposals for agreed boundaries. In 204 maps, the complete history of the conflict is revealed including:

  • 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 the present
  • the Jewish national home — from the Zionist plan for Palestine in 1919 to the state of the Arab world from 1945 to the present day
  • the intensification of the conflict — from the 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 War of Yom Kippur and the first and second Intifada, the suicide-bomb campaign, and the Israel-Hezbollah War of 2006
  • the moves to find peace — from the first and second Camp David talks, to the death of Arafat, to the continuing search for peace, including Annapolis, 2007, and beyond.
