Editorial Reviews

“Highly recommended: Everyone interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—general readers and academics alike—will want to consult this book.”—Choice“A valuable collection.”—The Economist“Shlaim ... provides a realpolitik reading of the history, demolishing the heroic and innocent image of Israel in its relations with the Palestinians.”—Foreign Affairs“Wonderful ... Not often today do we find historians who are this honest and this bleak and this able to express truth so simply.”—Robert Fisk, The Independent“Shlaim does not aim at a comprehensive overview of the conflict so much as a running rebuttal of Israel’s version of it; an insurgency in the public relations war.”—Rafael Behr, Observer“... a welcome and timely addition to the continuing debate on the Palestine-Israel conflict and its possible resolution.”—Journal of Palestine Studies
