Samenvatting

The Israel-Palestine Conflict: Contested Histories provides non-specialist readers with an introduction and historical overview of the issues that have characterized and defined 130 years of the still unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

  • Provides a fresh attempt to break away from polemical approaches that have undermined academic discussion and political debates

  • Focuses on a series of core arguments that the author considers essentially unwinnable

  • Introduces readers to the major historiographical debates sparked by the dispute

  • Encourages readers to consider more useful ways of explaining and understanding the conflict, and to go beyond trying to prove who is "right' and "wrong'




''This volume suggests a fresh and original interpretation to the history of the Arab Israeli conflict. Caplan juggles skillfully and even-handedly between the two narratives, reflecting the parties' own views without embracing the cause of any party.''

–Joseph Nevo, University of Haifa


''An impressive and very valuable work. One could not ask for a better short history of the conflict. Caplan offers readers a study that is extremely well-informed, resolutely fair-minded, and filled with thoughtful insights.''

–Mark Tessler, University of Michigan

Recensie(s)

Part of a series called Contesting the Past, this even-handed study is by a Canadian academic who has spent his whole career researching and teaching the history of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Caplan provides a brisk and balanced account of it. But he also manoeuvers deftly between and above the Arab and Zionist narratives and helpfully defines the main historiographical disputes that keep scholars arguing included loaded terminology like terrorism and resistance. It looks at the core arguments that seem to deadlock protagonists and historians alike, explaining cogently why the conflict has not yet been resolved and why it may never be. -Ian Black, Literary Hub
