This up-to-date collection of documents, essential for understanding the evolution of the conflict and efforts to resolve it, avoids presenting one perspective or another. A brief introductory essay is followed by a chronology of major events and developments over the last century. The more than 100 documents or their extracts are arranged chronologically, and short introductions briefly discuss the place of the document in the history and evolution of the conflict. A selected bibliography points to important sources for further reading, and the index further enhances the use of this research tool, making this historical record easy to use for broad interdisciplinary courses. This is also an important reference acquisition for college, university, institutional, and public libraries and a companion volume to Bernard Reich's The Arab-Israeli Conflict: An Historical Encyclopedia (Greenwood Press, 1996).
