Palestinian leadership on the West Bank : the changing role of the Arab mayors under Jordan and Israel by Moshe Maʻoz( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West Bank has for generations been the core area of the Palestinian-Arab community and of its national movement. Since 1967, it has become the main area of confrontation in the prolonged conflict between Palestinian-Arab and Jewish-Zionist nationalism. The Palestinian armed organization, the PLO - which has undertaken to lead the nationalist struggle of their people - was for long periods unable to operate on the West Bank because of strict security measures taken by the Jordanian and Israeli governments respectively. Consequently, the Palestinian mayors in the West Bank, who under Jordani
The PLO and Israel : from armed conflict to political solution, 1964-1994( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With daily changes in the headlines, it has become more important than ever to understand the history of the problems between Israelis and Palestinians in order to make sense of the present. The PLO's crucial political influence and its relationship to Israel form the focus of this new coedited volume. Bringing together top scholars of Israeli, Palestinian, and other international origins, The PLO and Israel examines not only the history of the PLO and its conflict with Israel, but also the transition of the PLO from the national liberation movement of the Palestinian people to a governing body. The scholars study such topics as the early foundations of the PLO, the relationship between the PLO and the United States, the role of women in the Intifada and the peace process, and the continuing development of the PLO's philosophy. An unusual attempt to bridge a gap over national historical narratives, The PLO and Israel presents an Israeli-Palestinian dialogue about a common past and offers hope for a deeper understanding in the future
Syria and Israel : from war to peacemaking by Moshe Maʻoz( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No Arab-Israeli war is possible without Egypt, and no Arab-Israeli peace is possible without Syria. This view, widely held among Middle Eastern analysts, has gained special importance since the later 1970s, when Egypt made peace with Israel, and the Arab-Israeli conflict became, in many respects, a bitter Syrian-Israeli conflict. Syria and Israel fought full-scale wars in 1948, 1967, and 1973, and clashed in border battles. Following the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty (1979), Syria and Israel, backed by the USSR and the USA, remained the major protagonists of this deep-rooted conflict. This book examines the history of relations between Israel and Syria throughout the Middle Eastern conflict. It explains the factors influencing their relations, the regional and global ramifications of their interactions, and the effect of domestic policies on both their relations. Drawing upon a variety of original sources and newly released documents, the author discusses still little-known episodes in relations between the countries such as Syrian peace offers to Israel in the early 1950s and mid-1970s; American and Soviet involvement; the role of Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and the PLO; Israel's contribution to the aggravation of the conflict with Syria, and the new Syrian diplomatic strategy since 1988 and the peacemaking process after the Madrid Conference (from late 1991). The author demonstrates the crucial importance of Syrian-Israeli relations for the strategic posture of both countries, for the fate of the Palestinian problem, and for the prospects of an overall Middle East peace settlement

The meeting of civilizations : Muslim, Christian, and Jewish by Moshe Maʻoz( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The horrific acts of anti-Western and anti-Jewish terrorism carried out by Muslim fanatics during the last decades have been labelled by politicians, religious leaders, and scholars as a "Clash of Civilizations". However, as the contributors to this book set out to explain, these acts cannot be considered an Islamic onslaught on Judeo-Christian Civilization. While the hostile ideas, words and deeds perpetrated by supporters among the three monotheistic civilizations cannot be ignored, history has demonstrated a more positive, constructive, albeit complex, relationship among Muslims, Christians, and Jews during medieval and modern times. For long periods of time they shared divine and human values, cooperated in cultural, economic and political fields, and influenced one another's thinking."--Jacket

"Modern Syria: From Ottoman Rule to Pivotal Role in the Middle East tackles the social, economic, and political issues that face modern Syria and explores the historical reasons behind Syria's pivotal role in the Middle East. It deals with the creation of a Syrian national state; the relations between the religious communities and socioeconomic stratums in Syria, and how the power base is likely to change: past socioeconomic development, and how this may develop in the next decade; Syria's policy toward the Arab world and the West following the break from the Soviet Union in the late 1980s; and the Syrian attitude toward the Middle East peace process."--Jacket
