"This superior and remarkably thorough study of the Holy Land enigma is strongly recommended as an introduction." ---Choice "An indispensable, basic introduction. ... There is no better single volume." ---Gabriel Kolko, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, York University, Toronto and author ofAnother Century of War? "Gregory Harms has taken an enormously complex issue and made it engagingly accessible. An intelligent, thoughtful and comprehensive introduction to a terribly and consistently misunderstood conflict." ---Sara Roy, Senior Research Scholar, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University, and author ofFailing Peace The Palestine-Israel conflict is the most notorious and ingrained conflict of the twentieth century. Yet the way it is reported in the media is often confusing, leading many to assume the hostilities stretch back to an ancient period. This is the first book to provide a clear, accessible, and annotated introduction that covers the full 2,000-year history of the region, from biblical times until today. Perfect for the general reader, as well as students, it offers a comprehensive yet lucid rendering of the conflict, setting it in its proper historical context. Harms and Ferry show how today's violence is very much a product of recent history, with its roots in the twentieth century. This balanced account is now fully up-to-date and makes a valuable resource for anyone who wants a clear guide to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian territories, and its place in the history of Middle Eastern affairs.

Gregory Harms is an independent scholar based in Chicago. He is the author of Straight Power Concepts in the Middle East: US Foreign Policy, Israel and World History (Pluto, 2010).

Todd M. Ferry began his studies in archaeology and Near East history at Indiana University. He received his MA in Syro-Palestinian archaeology from the University of Chicago in 2001, and has worked as a supervisor at the sites of Ashkelon and Tel Beth Shemesh in Israel.
