The Arab-Israeli conflict has become a touchstone of international politics and a flash point on college campuses. And yet, how do faculty teach such a contentious topic in class? Taught not only in international relations, peace and conflict resolution, politics and history, and Israel and Middle Eastern studies courses but also in literature, sociology, urban planning, law, cinema, fine art, and business-the subject guarantees wide interest among students. Faculty are challenged to deal with the subject's complexity and the sensitive dynamics it creates. The result is anxiety as they approach the task and a need for guidance. Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict edited by Rachel S. Harris is the first book designed to meet this need. Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict brings together thirty-nine essays from experienced educators who reflect on the challenges of engaging students in college classrooms. Divided into seven sections, these personal essays cover a broad range of institutional and geographical settings, as well as a wide number of academic disciplines. Some of the topics include using graphic novels and memoirs to wrestle with the complexities of Israel/Palestine, the perils of misreading in the creative writing classroom as border crossing, teaching competing narratives through film, using food to teach the Arab-Israeli conflict, and teaching the subject in the community college classroom. Each essay includes suggestions for class activities, resources, and approaches to effective teaching. Whether planning a new course or searching for new teaching ideas, this collection is an indispensable compendium for anyone teaching the Arab-Israeli conflict.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One great virtue of Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict is that often the authors express their personal voices and convictions concerning the conflict and the moral dilemmas and struggles this often presents them as each seeks to fulfill her/his obligations within the classroom. This makes for compelling reading completely apart from the material the book provides for those who are designing courses in this area. Because of this feature of the book, I found that many of the essays captivated me in the way that fine literature always does, and I know this gives the book a potential audience far beyond that of the classroom.-- (02/07/2019)
Teaching the Arab-Israeli Conflict presents an outstanding addition to the existing literature on the conflict, as it sets an entirely new standard for works of this kind. It contains the most valuable-and comprehensive-material for effective and fair minded instruction of a truly complex subject. It has no equal as regards the depth and range of the collected studies by authors of impeccable scholarly credentials.-- (02/07/2019)
