Description
 
Israel-Palestine in a Nutshell is, in fact, two books in one.

One side explains the genesis of Israel "in a nutshell" beginning with Israel's ancient biblical history, following the Jews through decades of anti-Semitism and their return to their homeland in the 19th century. The book outlines Israel's struggle to maintain and expand its territory while protecting its citizens from belligerent terrorist organizations within and across its borders. Israel in a Nutshell also navigates through the myriad Middle East peace proposals and ends with a description of Israel's government (including the creation of the Kadima Party and a biography of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert).

Palestine in a Nutshell begins in the same historical period as its Israeli counterpart but concentrates on the rise of Islam and the Ottoman period. This section focuses on the plight of the Palestinian refugees after the "catastrophe" of 1948, the rise of the PLO, the development and politicization of Hamas and terrorism. It concludes by exploring the Palestinian perspective on controversial issues including refugees, and Jerusalem (Al-Quds).
