Reviews


"No one henceforth will be able to write on this period without reference to this basic study....Told with high regard for sources, in a smoothly written narrative that leaves the reader with a sense for how deep the antagonism between Arabs and Israelis really is."--Foreign Affairs


"Morris has thoroughly combed newly opened archival material...and newly published studies, to produce an exhaustive, often revealing...account of those seven years of Arab-Israeli hostilities."--The Jerusalem Report
