FOREWORD’S LIT HIT—INDIE BOOKS THAT’LL BLOW YOU AWAY
A standing ovation is the only reasonable response to Dov Waxman’s The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: What Everyone Needs to Know, as well as heartfelt thanks for addressing all the questions we are afraid everyone knows the answers to but us. A well-organized primer on one of the most enduring conflicts in human history, Waxman begins in the nineteenth century and moves forward at a steady, easy-reading pace. This seemingly impenetrable history is organized into a series of questions Waxman answers with facts, figures, and his own wealth of knowledge as a professor specializing in political science and the Middle East. A comprehensive index in the back matter cements the book’s place on your shelf as an invaluable reference, ensuring you will return to it the next time a news broadcast confounds.
