T. G. Fraser provides a balanced and thoughtful analysis of one of the most tragic conflicts in modern history. From the creation of Israel to the situation today, this text follows the key events and issues arising from the partition of Palestine. The major regional wars and Palestinian Intifadas are examined, with a particular focus on the series of crises over Gaza. This thoroughly updated edition features a new final chapter, covering events since 2007. It takes into account attempts by the USA to work towards a peace settlement, including John Kerry's initiative of 2013-14.
