The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has generated a vast quantity of documents from many quarters and a plethora of suggestions for its resolution. No comparable regional conflict has been subject to such scrutiny or given rise to such radically different interpretations of the same basic facts. Any serious analysis of the conflict demands a thorough familiarity with its documentary history. This collection, compiled and edited by Yehuda Lukacs, brings together in one volume key documents and statements of the position of the parties directly and indirectly involved: Israel, the Palestinians, the Arab states, the United States, the Soviet Union, the European Community and the United Nations. This book covers the period 1967-1990. It begins with UN Security Council Resolution 242 and ends with documents pertaining to Israel's 1989 West Bank elections proposal, Egypt's Ten Point Plan, and US Secretary of State James Baker's Five Point Proposal for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

"...one of the merits of this collection lies in the presentation of such a wide selection of well-chosen documents. Although the historical period covered is relatively short, it is a crucial one that contains several important turning-points. Most valuable is the fact that the selected documents offer several complementary or conflicting perspectives; thus they themselves provide an important part of the context that editors sometimes interject less successfully." Neil Caplan, Journal of Palestine Studies
