Synopsis

Fully updated in 2015, this title examines the roots of the Arab-Israeli conflict as well as the current divisions in Israel and Palestine including unrest over water and oil, the growth of terrorist organisations and Israel's relationships with the West and their Middle Eastern neighbours.

Case studies show real-life experiences from a variety of diverse sources. Viewpoint panels present each side of the argument from those involved in the conflict, politicians and the media. The panels look at who is behind each quote and suggest points to consider to guide the debate. Timelines, fact boxes and maps put the events into context.

Why do some places experience conflict? What is it like to live in a country torn apart by unrest and violence? Is there a way to resolve the problems? The Our World Divided series explores these questions as it looks at today's most contentious issues affecting areas of conflict around the world.
