Although much has been written about the Arab-Israeli conflict and about general theories of negotiation, this analysis and history is unique in linking major issues and peace plans to negotiation theory and strategy. Feste studies the basic structures of conflict and negotiation, offering no suggestions for radical solution but arguing for changes in approach that may bring about steps forward. This overview of all major peace efforts since 1947 and of negotiating strategies is intended for undergraduate and graduate courses in conflict resolution, Middle Eastern politics, and international relations; and for the use of political scientists, sociologists, students, and teachers concerned with ethnoconflict. The text analyzes the framework of the Arab-Israeli conflict, how it has built up, and how it has been maintained. The structure of the negotiation process is then viewed in the same way. Key elements in the Arab-Israeli conflict are considered historically and related directly to the process of negotiation and to theories about positional and principled bargaining and tactics needed in a pre-negotiation period and during negotiation to produce more successful results.

The Arab-Israeli Conflict Kirsten E. Schulze In this fully revised new edition, Kirsten Schulze brings us to a new understanding of the causes, course and consequences of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Schulze ""analyses the dynamics of the violence and explores the numerous attempts at resolving the conflict. She assesses why, in the cases of Israel-Egypt in 1978 and Israel-Jordan in 1994, negotiations succeeded in bringing about a lasting peace and why, in the cases of Israel, and the Palestinians, Syria and Lebanon, they failed to do so. Written in a clear and accessible style, this fully updated second edition: - Traces the origins of the conflict from their first intellectual roots in the 19th century. - Examines the actions and aims of the competing nationalist movements during the period of the British Mandate which led to the creation of the state of Israel. - Outlines and analyses each of the Arab-Israeli conflicts from the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 to the 2006 Lebanon war and the on-going, second Palestinian uprising With a diverse collection of documents and a Chronology, Glossary, Guide to Further Reading, and a Who's Who summarizing the careers and contributions of the main figures, this book is absolutely vital to understanding the current Israeli-Palestinian violence, the intra-Palestinian rift between Hamas and Fatah, and why the Arab-Israeli conflict has become the centre of Muslim politics, both violent and non-violent, across the world. Kirsten E. Schulze is senior lecturer in the Department of International History at the London School of Economics. Her recent publications include "Israel's Covert Diplomacy in Lebanon "(1997) and "The Jews of Lebanon: Between Coexistence and Conflict" (2004) as well as articles on Israeli-Lebanese relations in the 1950s, Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon, and the al-Aqsa Intifada.

Der Judenstaat. Versuch einer modernen Lösung der Judenfrage ist ein Buch von Theodor Herzl, mit dem er versuchte, eine jüdische Antwort auf die damals so genannte Judenfrage aufzuzeigen. Herzl schrieb es unter dem Eindruck der Dreyfus-Affäre; er beendete das Manuskript am 17. Juni 1895. Den Grund für den seiner Ansicht nach wachsenden Antisemitismus sieht er in der mangelnden sozialen Mobilität, die durch Benachteiligungen der Juden entsteht. Eine totale soziologische Assimilation lehnt Herzl jedoch ab, da die jüdische Volkspersönlichkeit geschichtlich zu berühmt und trotz aller Erniedrigungen zu hoch sei. Sie sei zu wertvoll für den Untergang. Davon abgesehen sei eine Assimilation nur dann möglich, wenn man die Juden einmal für zwei Generationen in Ruhe ließe. Dies würde aber nicht passieren, worauf der Druck sie wieder an den alten Stamm presse, der Hass ihrer Umgebung mache sie wieder zu Fremden. Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) war ein österreichisch-ungarischer Schriftsteller jüdischer Herkunft, Publizist und Journalist und der Begründer des modernen politischen Zionismus. Er gilt deshalb als der zentrale Vordenker und zugleich als aktiver Wegbereiter eines modernen Judenstaats, der später in Form des modernen Staates Israel Realität wurde.

This timely book offers a blueprint for resolving what is often called the most intractable--if not taboo--subject in the Arab-Israeli peace negotiations: a just and permanent solution to the problem of over 3 million Palestinian refugees. The refugee question has never before been treated as the keystone of regional peace and stability.In a hard-hitting, yet balanced and dispassionate analysis, Donna Arzt advocates that the end of the Middle East conflict can only be achieved when all Palestinian refugees are offered citizenship, compensation for lost property, and voluntary absorption options in either a future state of Palestine, other Arab states in the region, the broader international community, or, on family reunification grounds, repatriation in Israel.Comprehensive in scope, yet free of technical jargon, the book is both accessible to generalists and valuable to specialists in the fields of refugee studies, the Middle East conflict, human rights, and public international law. Drawing on the latest historiography, demographic data, and legal texts on the concept of "return," statelessness and minority rights, Refugees into Citizens avoids falling into the trap of relitigating old polemics and accusations by inviting the international community into a pragmatic, forward-looking dialogue on this most politically sensitive question."Donna Arzt's innovative and substantial proposal for resolving the complex Palestine refugee issue challenges us to act on the basis that inclusion, reconciliation, compromise, dignity, and belonging are important ingredients in a search for viable, concrete, legal, and lasting resolution to seemingly intractable refugee problems at conflict's end." Judy Mayotte, author, Disposable People? The Plight of the Refugees"This compact book brilliantly summarizes both the history of and the law governing the status of millions of Palestinian refugees. It offers a workable plan for turning these refugees into citizens as part of a comprehensive settlement of the Arab- Israeli conflict. I recommend it to experts and lay readers alike." Rita E. Hauser, International Lawyer

Thoroughly updated and expanded, this new edition of Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace examines the history of recurrent efforts to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict and identifies a pattern of negative negotiating behaviors that seem to repeatedly derail efforts to achieve peace. In a lively and accessible style, Laura Zittrain Eisenberg and Neil Caplan examine eight case studies of recent Arab-Israeli diplomatic encounters, from the Egyptian-Israeli peace of 1979 to the beginning of the Obama administration, in light of the historical record. By measuring contemporary diplomatic episodes against the pattern of counterproductive negotiating habits, this book makes possible a coherent comparison of over sixty years of Arab-Israeli negotiations and gives readers a framework with which to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of peace-making attempts, past, present, and future.

A landmark manifesto issuing a bold call for a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestine conflict. The reigning consensus in elite and academic circles is that the United States must seek to resolve the Palestinians' conflict with Israel by implementing the so-called two-state solution. Establishing a Palestinian state, so the thinking goes, would be a panacea for all the region’s ills. In a time of partisan gridlock, the two-state solution stands out for its ability to attract supporters from both sides of America's ideological divide. But the great irony is that it is one of the most irrational and failed policies the United States has ever adopted. Between 1970 and 2013, the United States presented nine different peace plans for Israel and the Palestinians, and for the past twenty years, the two state solution has been the centerpiece of U.S. Middle East policy. But despite this laser focus, American efforts to implement a two-state peace deal have failed—and with each new attempt, the Middle East has become less stable, more violent, more radicalized, and more inimical to democratic values and interests. In The Israeli Solution, Caroline Glick, senior contributing editor to the Jerusalem Post, examines the history and misconceptions behind the two-state policy, most notably: - The huge errors made in counting the actual numbers of Jews and Arabs in the region. The 1997 Palestinian Census, upon which most two-state policy is based, wildly exaggerated the numbers of Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza. - Neglect of the long history of Palestinian anti-Semitism, refusal to negotiate in good faith, terrorism, and denial of Israel’s right to exist. - Disregard for Israel’s stronger claims to territorial sovereignty under international law, as well as the long history of Jewish presence in the region. - Indifference to polling data that shows the Palestinian people admire Israeli society and governance. Despite a half-century of domestic and international terrorism, anti-semitism, and military attacks from regional neighbors who reject its right to exist, Israel has thrived as the Middle East’s lone democracy. After a century spent chasing a two-state policy that hasn’t brought the Israelis and Palestinians any closer to peace, The Israeli Solution offers an alternative path to stability in the Middle East based on Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
