The book uses a chronological framework while providing essential information on both sides of the religious, ethnic, and ideological background of the conflict. It explains the critical issues, including Great Powers rivalries, causes and results of the major wars, the rise of Palestinian nationalism, the Israeli-occupied territories, and the Intifada. This third edition has been revised to include a new chapter with the most up-to-date assessment of the situation, reflecting the impact of the 1996 Israeli elections.
