The Case for Peace: How the Arab-Israeli Conflict Can be Resolved

  • ISBN13: 9780470045855
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
In The Case for Peace, Dershowitz identifies twelve geopolitical barriers to peace between Israel and Palestine–and explains how to move around them and push the process forward. From the division of Jerusalem and Israeli counterterrorism measures to the security fence and the Iranian nuclear threat, his analyses are clear-headed, well-argued, and sure to be controversial. According to Dershowitz, achieving a lasting peace will require more than tough-minded negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. In academia, Europe, the UN, and the Arab world, Israel-bashing and anti-Semitism have reached new heights, despite the recent Israeli-Palestinian movement toward peace. Surveying this outpouring of vilification, Dershowitz deconstructs the smear tactics used by Israel-haters and shows how this kind of anti-Israel McCarthyism is aimed at scuttling any real chance of peace.

Righteous Victims: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict, 1881-2001

  • ISBN13: 9780679744757
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
At a time when the Middle East has come closer to achieving peace than ever before, eminent Israeli historian Benny Morris explodes the myths cherished by both sides to present an epic history of Zionist-Arab relations over the past 120 years.

Tracing the roots of political Zionism back to the pogroms of Russia and the Dreyfus Affair, Morris describes the gradual influx of Jewish settlers into Palestine and the impact they had on the Arab population. Following the Holocaust, the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948 resulted in the establishment of the State of Israel, but it also shattered Palestinian Arab society and gave rise to a massive refugee problem. Morris offers distinctive accounts of each of the subsequent Israeli-Arab wars and details the sporadic peace efforts in between, culminating in the peace process initiated by the Rabin Government. In a new afterword to the Vintage edition, he examines Ehud Barak’s leadership, the death of President Assad of Syria, and Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon, and the recent renewed conflict with the Palestinians. Studded with illuminating portraits of the major protagonists, Righteous Victims provides an authoritative record of the middle east and its continuing struggle toward peace.
Amazon.com Review
Making sense of any particular episode in the long and convoluted conflict between Arabs and Israelis can seem a Sisyphean task–engineering peace in the Middle East has become nearly clichéd in its complexity, with each individual dispute traceable back to years of anger, mistrust, and mutual misunderstanding fueled by cycles of violence and revenge. To add to this confusion, the historical record has been colored by “emphatic partisanship by commentators and historians from both sides, as well as by foreign observers,” adds Middle East historian Benny Morris. So what Morris has undertaken in this volume–an inclusive, dispassionate, and rigorous history of the conflict, from Zionism’s birth in the wake of the Russian pogroms through to the uncertain prospects for peace in 1999–is no mean feat.

A calm, balanced voice (although a controversial one among some who fear revisionism), Morris has previously proven his scholarship with such definitive titles as Israel’s Border Wars and The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem. Righteous Victims likewise doesn’t waver in its task, methodically unearthing the political and military roots of the struggle, from early friction between Zionist “colonizers” and native Arabs slowly through to the establishment of Israel and the bloody wars and terrorism that followed. –Paul Hughes

The Other Arab-Israeli Conflict: Making America’s Middle East Policy, from Truman to Reagan

Product Description

The Other Arab-Israeli Conflict illuminates the controversial course of America’s Middle East relations from the birth of Israel to the Reagan administration. Skillfully separating actual policymaking from the myths that have come to surround it, Spiegel challenges the belief that American policy in the Middle East is primarily a relation to events in that region or is motivated by bureaucratic constraints or the pressures of domestic politics. On the contrary, he finds that the ideas and skills of the president and his advisors are critical to the determination of American policy. This volume received the 1986 National Jewish Book Award.

Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: DOCUMENTARIES Rating: NR Age: 821575550352 UPC: 821575550352 Manufacturer No: TF-55035

Product Description
Like an open wound that will not heal the Arab-Israeli conflict refuses to be resolved. Blood and Tears uncovers the truth beneath the hype and the headlines. Rosmarin and his team of Middle East experts have gone right to the source: the ministers and mullahs, the fanatics and peaceniks, the soldiers and terrorists, and the ordinary families battling extraordinary forces as they try to live a normal life. Top officials from both sides are interviewed, from former Israeli Prime Ministers to senior Palestinian officials to the leaders of the militant extremist group Hamas. They have also interviewed experts, like renowned Mideast scholars Bernard Lewis, and the foremost Palestinian scholar Rashid Khalidi. Blood and Tears explores the origin of the confrontation itself, and challenges many of the most deep-rooted myths we all hold about this epicenter of human conflict.
