About this title


As the world inches closer and closer to becoming a truly global society, it becomes all the more important that each and every citizen understand the historical underpinnings of the world's most infamous regional disputes. This series explains the roots of such disputes by examining the history of the regions involved, and by presenting the major issues involved from each party's perspective. Each book encourages students to put themselves in the shoes of both parties, and probing questions challenge students to propose real-life solutions for settling these divisive situations. Chronicles the carving up of the Middle East following the First World War into what is now the modern Arab world, and later the formation of the nation-state of Israel.

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Heather Lehr Wagner's India and Pakistan.

Gr. 6-12. With a clear overview of tumultuous conflicts between nations, these books in the People at Odds series use a straightforward historical approach supported by many examples of how common people have been affected, and often devastated, by political and military forces. Both books begin just after WW II and trace the conflicts to the present. India and Paki stan follows the history chronologically, emphasizing the initial geographic division of the two countries as the main source of conflict. Israel and the Arab World discusses the political scene more generally, drawing a clear picture of dissenting sides over many decades and including the views of world leaders. Both books are packed with valuable information and insights that will give students a firm foundation for understanding the source of these conflicts and a realistic view of the prospects for peace. The readable design includes black-and-white and color photos that highlight political leaders and show the suffering of ordinary people. Roger Leslie
