The Israel-Palestine Conflict: Contested Histories provides non-specialist readers with an introduction and historical overview of the issues that have characterized and defined 130 years of the still unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

  • Provides a fresh attempt to break away from polemical approaches that have undermined academic discussion and political debates
  • Focuses on a series of core arguments that the author considers essentially unwinnable
  • Introduces readers to the major historiographical debates sparked by the dispute
  • Encourages readers to consider more useful ways of explaining and understanding the conflict, and to go beyond trying to prove who is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’

"This volume suggests a fresh and original interpretation to the history of the Arab Israeli conflict. Caplan juggles skillfully and even-handedly between the two narratives, reflecting the parties’ own views without embracing the cause of any party."
Joseph Nevo, University of Haifa

"An impressive and very valuable work. One could not ask for a better short history of the conflict. Caplan offers readers a study that is extremely well-informed, resolutely fair-minded, and filled with thoughtful insights."
Mark Tessler, University of Michigan

From the Back Cover:

The Israel-Palestine Conflict: Contested Histories offers non-specialist readers insights into the causes and consequences of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A general introduction is followed by a detailed historical overview of the issues that have defined more than a century of political tensions and open hostilities.

Caplan highlights the tangible issues over which the parties are fighting, but returns frequently to examine some of the more intangible underlying factors that continue to hamper a peaceful resolution, such as the mutual sense of victimization shared by both parties. Giving voice to the competing narratives of both Palestinians and Israelis, this book breaks away from polemical approaches that have undermined academic discussion and political debates about the conflict. The author introduces readers to the major historiographical debates sparked by the dispute, and suggests more useful ways of explaining and understanding the obstacles to reconciliation and conflict resolution.

About the Author:

Neil Caplan holds a PhD in Politics from London School of Economics & Political Science (University of London) and is Adjunct Assistant Professor of History at Concordia University and Scholar in Residence at Vanier College, Montreal, Canada. He recently retired after 35 years of teaching in the Humanities Department of Vanier College. He has published numerous articles and seven books, including Palestine Jewry and the Arab Question, 1917-1925 (1978), Futile Diplomacy, a four-volume study of Arab-Zionist and Arab-Israeli negotiations from 1913 to 1956, and (with Laurie Z. Eisenberg), Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace: Patterns, Problems, Possibilities (1998; revised edition 2010).
