Summary "One of the most crucial issues to affect Israel's current and future national policies is that of relations between the Jewish and Arab citizens of the State of Israel. The confrontation of October 2000 manifested the explosive potential if some of the dilemmas associated with these relations are not resolved." "This volume of articles offers the academic community and the public at large a comprehensive analysis of the most significant issues contributing throughout the years to the emergence of the current conditions. The writers, all leading experts in their respective fields, cover history, sociology and politics and offer a variety of viewpoints and methodologies. This is a must for all concerned with Israeli-Arab relations in the Jewish state for years to come."--BOOK JACKET
