Abstract:

Key problems, conflicts, and decisions in Israel's past and present are analyzed in this documented, dramatic history of the turbulent events that have shaped the crisis in the Middle East. From the questionable policies of the British, both in the Mandate era and in 1948, to the debate over the return of territories won in the Six-Day War and the war of attrition that spills over into the rest of the world, this book carefully examines Israel and its relationship to the rest of the Middle East as well as the rest of the world. Author Katz is a lifelong activist in the cause of Jewish national rebirth; he was a member of the first Parliament of Israel and an adviser to Prime Minister Menachim Begin.--From publisher description.
