The Origins of the Arab Israeli Wars - Origins Of Modern Wars (Paperback)Ritchie Ovendale (author)
- We can order this
This highly-regarded history gives a balanced and judicious introduction to this immensely complex and controversial subject, weaving different strands of the story into a single coherent narrative, thus making it essential reading for all students studying conflict in the Middle East. Of all the troubles affecting the modern world few are as topical, deep rooted and intractable as the Arab-Israeli conflict. For this region, an understanding of the past is vital to an understanding of the present. Ritchie Ovendale's classic study of the roots of the conflict is now updated for a fourth time and considers events until 2003.

`Ovendale does an admirable job of making sense of these diverse currents, and turns the history of the conflict into a coherent, readable narrative.'
`Although Ritchie Ovendale's book is short, it is extremely well documented...If one wants to understand the origins of the Arab-Israeli wars, one must read this brief book.'
