Caplan juggles skillfully and even-handedly between the two narratives, reflecting the parties’ own views without embracing the cause of any party.”<br /> –<b>Joseph Nevo</b>, University of Haifa</p> <p>”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.”<br /> –<b>Mark Tessler</b>, University of Michigan</p>
