This exhaustive work offers readers at multiple levels key insights into the military, political, social, cultural, and religious origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Political, Social, and Military History is the first comprehensive general reference encompassing all aspects of the contentious Arab-Israeli relationship from biblical times to the present, with an emphasis on the era beginning with World War I. The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict goes beyond simply recapping military engagements. In four volumes, with more than 750 alphabetically organized entries, plus a separate documents volume, it provides a wide-ranging introduction to the distinct yet inextricably linked Arab and Israeli worlds and worldviews, exploring all aspects of the conflict. The objective analysis will help readers understand the dramatic events that have impacted the entire world, from the founding of modern Israel to the building of the Suez Canal; from the Six-Day War to the Camp David Accords; from the assassinations of Anwar Sadat and Yitzhak Rabin to the rise and fall of Yasser Arafat, the 2006 Palestinian elections, and the Israeli-Hezbollah War in Lebanon. * With more than 750 alphabetically organized entries covering everything from important people, places, and events to a wide range of social and cultural topics-each entry featuring cross references and suggestions for further reading * A separate documents volume offering an unprecedented collection of more than 150 essential primary sources * Over 500 images, including maps, photographs, and illustrations * A comprehensive introductory overview by retired general Anthony Zinni

"Teachers will appreciate the comprehensive overview essay that opens the work as well as the wealth of readable articles that provide students with much-needed background. The books offer a generous number of photographs, maps, and charts. Volume Four contains 168 carefully selected documents with contextual introductions. Appendices include military ranks, country profiles, a selected bibliography, glossary, and a categorical index, as well as a traditional index. The chronologies cover the history of the region and specific issues and conflicts. Unfortunately, the volumes were published prior to the emerging conflicts of the past two years. Nevertheless, this set is a very valuable addition to the reference collection of all academic high schools. Highly recommended." - Pennsylvania School Librarians Association "The Encyclopediais a useful book." - Reference Reviews "A comprehensive look at myriad aspects of the continuing clash between Arabs and Israelis. Althrough the focus is on the Arab-Israeli wars from 1947, many entries help achieve a balance between historical and contemporary context." - Booklist "This four-volume set is a carefully planned, analytical, and creative encyclopedia on Israeli-Arab relations, with particular emphasis on the history of Zionism and the Palestinian national entity. . . . This well informed and balanced reference work details how and why this conflict came to be and continues still today." - ARBA "It would be a welcome addition to any undergraduate collection." - Reference & User Services Quarterly "High school to college libraries strong in Jewish history and culture or Middle East history will find the volumes of The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Political, Social and Military History to be key to understanding the region's conflicts." - Midwest Book Review "[A]n invaluable resource for scholars, students, and general readers seeking information about this influential conflict, as well as for those seeking to gain a detailed, and accurate understanding of the conflict. The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Political, Social, and Military History is an essential, general reference encyclopedia that should be added to all academic and public libraries." - The Jewish Eye "Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice "The Encyclopedia of the Arab-Israeli Conflict is a set that will be in high demand by both academic libraries as well as larger public libraries." - Against the Grain "The current, more comprehensive work will be useful in a wide range of public, academic, and congregational libraries." - Booklist, Starred Review "[A]n accessible, exhaustive and invaluable reference to a potentially critical modern issue, and carries the absolute highest recommendation for public and college libraries as well as international reference collections." - Midwest Book Review "This well informed and balanced reference work details how and why this conflict came to be and continues still today." - American Reference Books Annual
