Enemies and Neighbours synopsis
Economics, Sundays, Financial Times and The Will Books of 2017 'A Comprehensive and Attractive Study ... A Distinguished Historical Study Deserved by the Merit of Palestinian and Israeli Historians' Justin Marozi, 19th Century After promising the British Balfour Declaration the Jewish "national homeland" in Palestine, The Guardian Ian Black has a great new history in one of the most polarized conflicts of modern times.
Relying on a wide range of sources - from confidential documents to oral testimony and his own reports - brings enemies and neighbors a necessary perspective and balance to the long and unresolved conflict between Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land. Years of Ottoman rule During the British Mandate, when Zionist immigration turned Palestine in the face of rising Arab opposition, the book rethinks the origins of what was a disappointing relationship from the beginning.
Sheds new light on critical events such as the Arab insurgency in the 1930s. Israel's independence and the Palestinian catastrophe (the Nakba in Arabic) of 1948; the turning point of the 1967 war; the two intifadas of the Oslo Accords and the transformation of Israel to the right.
It follows how - after five decades of occupation, ever-expanding Jewish settlements and the construction of the separation wall in the West Bank - they hope the two-state solution will disappear and explore what the future may hold. Beyond the most important events - wars, violence and peace initiatives - to capture daily lives on the ground in Jerusalem, Hebron, Tel Aviv, Ramallah, Haifa and Gaza, for both sides of the unequal conflict.
"Lucid", "Enemies" and "Neighbors" exude a bitter struggle that shows no sign of the end - which is why it is very necessary to understand it.
