Contested Histories

One of the "10 Must-Read Histories of the Palestine-Israel Conflict"
Ian Black, Literary Hub, on the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration


The new edition of the acclaimed text that explores the issues continuing to define the Israeli-Palestinian conflict


Numerous instances of competing, sometimes incompatible narratives of controversial events are found throughout history. Perhaps the starkest example of such contradictory representations is the decades-long conflict between Israel and Palestine. For over 140 years, Israelis, Palestinians, and scores of peacemakers have failed to establish a sustainable, mutually-acceptable solution. The Israel-Palestine Conflict introduces the historical basis of the dispute and explores both the tangible issues and intangible factors that have blocked a peaceful resolution. Author Neil Caplan helps readers understand the complexities and contradictions of the conflict and why the histories of Palestine and Israel are so fiercely contested.


Now in its second edition, this book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the events that have transpired since its original publication. Fresh insights consider the impact of current global and regional instability and violence on the prospects of peace and reconciliation. New discussions address recent debates over two-state versus one-state solutions, growing polarization in public discourse outside of the Middle East, the role of public intellectuals, and the growing trend of merging scholarship with advocacy. Part of the Wiley-Blackwell Contested Histories series, this clear and accessible volume:



  • Offers a balanced, non-polemic approach to current academic discussions and political debates on the Israel-Palestine conflict

  • Highlights eleven core arguments viewed by the author as unwinnable

  • Encourages readers to go beyond simply assigning blame in the conflict

  • Explores the major historiographical debates arising from the dispute

  • Includes updated references and additional maps


Already a standard text for courses on the history and politics of the Middle East, The Israel-Palestine Conflict is an indispensable resource for students, scholars, and interested general readers.
