Overview

The Arab-Israeli Conflict describes the ongoing struggle for land, power, and cultural and religious survival between the Jewish nation of Israel and the Palestinian and other Arabic-speaking peoples of the Middle East. Beginning with the contradictory promises that Great Britain made to Arabs and Jews about Palestine during World War II, this area of the world has been - and continues to be - a land in dispute. Wars, protests, and multiple acts of terror have been punctuated by attempts at peace agreements, often brokered by the United States. This book tells the history of that conflict, and it explores why the people of the region continue their struggle with one another as they seek peace, cultural and religious autonomy, and prosperity.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The war between Israelis and Arabs has been an ongoing for over fifty years. First established by the United Nations in 1948, the state of Israel has been challenged by its Arab neighbors from that moment on. Likewise, Palestinians who also lay claim to the land that encompasses Israel have also have been in a state of continuous warfare and occupation for the duration of this time span. Periodic wars have occurred and ongoing terrorism and guerilla war have peppered the region. In The Arab-Israeli War readers are provided a textbook recounting of the major happenings in a confrontation that has no foreseeable end. Woolf does a fine job of factually retelling a story of rival peoples who share so many commonalties, but who also appear unable to rectify their differences. In the end, as the author of this excellent book pinpoints, it is essential to world peace that a solution to this troubled circumstance be found. In this illustrated work readers will be afforded an opportunity to see the conflict in a sequential and thoughtful manner. Of particular value are the many colorful maps that demonstrate the pathways of settlement, warfare and proposed solutions to the mutual hatred. Indeed, as part of the "Atlas of Conflicts" series this book is partially designed to serve as a historical atlas. Through the combination of clear writing and useful visuals this book will help young readers understand a conflict that has global implications. 2005, World Almanac Library, Ages 12 up.

Gr 6-10-Both authors begin by recounting the background to the conflicts, and then provide objective overviews of their military, diplomatic, and political aspects. Grant concludes with an analysis of the consequences of the Korean War. Woolf ends with a discussion of the prospects for peace in the Middle East, but does not include information about Arafat's recent death and its implications for the peace process. Both of these informative books make extensive use of maps to illustrate their discussions. These maps will definitely help students understand how the geography of the regions influenced the conflicts as well as the specifics of strategies, battle plans, and occupations. Each volume also includes some paragraph-length profiles of relevant military and civilian leaders and statistical information about participating personnel and casualties. Black-and-white and color photos and reproductions add interest. Although these books do not have the level of detail found in Maurice Isserman's Korean War (Facts On File, 2003), their many maps and charts will help students better understand these conflicts. Good introductory choices.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
