Myths and Facts - A Guide to the Arab-Israeli Conflict

$ 14.00

In 1957, Near East Report began to inform the public about events relating to the Middle East, recognizing the need to educate readers about the Arab-Israeli conflict and to debunk the many myths perpetrated by those wishing to rewrite history to suit their own purposes. Toward this end, NER began to publish Myths and Facts. Myths continue while events in the Middle East seem to be consistently accompanied by all-new distortions of the facts about the Arab-Israeli conflict. This book tells how it can be hyperlinked to the vast resources available at the publisher's website.

Updated in 2006, this version of the classic guide to the Arab-Israeli conflict includes many of the events since Oslo.
