Brought right up to date with the latest momentous events, this extremely timely new edition of a best-seller, from arguably the most high profile historian writing today, traces the tangled and bitter history of the Arab-Jewish struggle from the early twentieth century to the present day.

Through 187 maps (including thirty two new ones) the complete history of the conflict is revealed by examining:

* the prelude and background to the conflict

* the Jewish National home

* the intensification of the conflict

* the state of Israel

* the moves to find peace

Accompanied by powerful and compelling quotations, this clear, illuminative and highly informative new edition from Martin Gilbert is an absolute must for all students of history.
