Review:

A well-documented, well-written, and persuasive account that mobilizes knowledge not readily available to the non-expert. . . . It is sprinkled with claims and explanations that are new and fascinating. . . . How Israel Was Won has an excellent chance of being widely read and prominently reviewed.--Ian Lustick, Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania

This book demythologizes Arab-Israeli history while grounding its interpretations in fact. It is a timely work.--Lawrence Davidson, West Chester University

A remarkable, stimulating, and balanced analysis of the Arab-Israeli conflict from its origin in the 19th century to the contemporary Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. . . . This book deserves a wide readership.--CHOICE

Baylis Thomas' concise history synthesizes for the general reader the vast number of historical studies and recently declassified documents from the United States and Israel to create an interpretation of this conflict.--Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal Of Jewish Studies, Summer 2000, Vol.18, No.14

For the interested reader wanting a single sourcebook on the rise and expansion of Israel... this one delives the goods with well-organized and clearly presented material backed up by all the documentation one could ask for.--Middle East Policy

Synopsis:

This is the only book you need in order to comprehend the complexities of the modern Middle East. Unlike most writing on the Arab-Israeli conflict, which combines myth and polemic, "How Israel Was Won" is a balanced, well researched and insightful chronicle of Israel in the 20th century. Baylis Thomas's concise history synthesizes for the general reader the vast number of historical studies and recently declassified documents from the United States and Israel to create a sophisticated and completely original interpretation of this conflict. The narrative examines the charged ideological minefield of Israeli and Palestinian relations to reveal to complex story behind Israel's founding, its early struggle for survival, and its movements toward reconciliation with its Arab neighbours. Thomas also investigates the critical, self-interested roles played by Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union and the United States, and he explores the political and psychological attitudes of the protagonists and the international community at large. "How Israel Was Won" is the most current and most accessible account of the Arab-Israeli conflict written to date.
