Editorial Reviews

"Of the numerous books devoted to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Univ. of Michigan political science professor Tessler's contribution certainly ranks among the most extensive and thorough. Given the highly polemical nature of the discourse over Israel/Palestine, Tessler's ability to provide a balanced account should be commended....Recommended. -M. Gershovich, University of Nebraska, Omaha" -Choice, March 2010
