The often-violent conflict between the state of Israel and the displaced Palestinian people occupies newspaper headlines and television news every day. Despite such coverage, many people still understand very little about the cause of this all but undeclared war. Untenable promises of former colonizers, access to water, and religious and cultural traditions as entwined as they are distinct have all contributed to what is arguably the greatest global problem of our time. The Dictionary Of The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict covers the history of the conflict, going back to the birth of Zionism at the end of the 19th century. The two-volume set covers five Arab-Israeli wars, and provides biographies of political personnel in Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, and the occupied territories. The Dictionary provides clear definitions and comprehensive explanations of the elements at play---history, geography, religion, demographics, and more---and supports the acquisition of knowledge about this topic, not just dissemination of information.
