The often-violent conflict between the state of Israel and the displaced Palestinian people occupies newspaper headlines and television news every day. Despite such coverage, many people still understand very little about the cause of this all but undeclared war. Dictionary of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict covers the history of the conflict, going back to the birth of Zionism at the end of the 19th century. The two-volume set covers five Arab-Israeli wars, and provides biographies of political personnel in Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and the occupied territories. The Dictionary provides clear definitions and comprehensive explanations of the elements at play -- history, geography, religion, demographics and more -- and supports the acquisition of knowledge about this topic, not just dissemination of information.
