A Survey of Arab-Israeli Relations: Since 1947.

A SURVEY OF ARAB-ISRAELI RELATIONS Since 1947 2nd edition published by Europa Publications ISBN 1 85743 261 4 price 120.00 [pounds sterling] hardback

This is the second edition of A Survey of Arab-Israeli Relations, one of Europa's range of international reference books, which documents the principal events in one of the most intractable and long-running international disputes in the contemporary world. The book aims to provide an up-to-date, comprehensive and impartial review of the events that have shaped the Arab-Israeli dispute in the period between the end of the British Mandate in Palestine and the present. Europa's standing as a current-affairs publisher throughout this period enables it to provide a unique record of the region's events.

The five sections comprising this book aim to approach the issues in such a way as to present the reader with more than one perspective on a particular topic. A chronology of the period gives a record of events with an important bearing on the subject matter. The second section contains two essays; Arab-Israeli Relations 1947-67, and Arab-Israeli Relations since 1967, an essay compiled over time by a number of academics and writers on Middle Eastern affairs; these essays detail events since 1947 in a more analytical context. The third part, Documents on Palestine, reproduces the texts of a number of letters, treaties and agreements that have arisen from the Arab-Israeli dispute, and illustrates a number of these with maps. Fourthly, a series of profiles of the most prominent political figures in Arab-Israeli relations in the period concerned permits the reader to understand the personalities involved. Lastly, a bibliography provides further reading on the subject and closely related topics.

At a time when the prospect of a durable peace in the region appears more remote than for some years, this book will prove a significant and impartial addition to the body of published material on the subject.
