cover From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine
by Joan Peters
(New York: Harper & Row, 1984).
The best history of the conflict, at least to the date of its publication, and the most comprehensive account of the pre-1948 background to the Arab-Jewish conflict over what Arabs insist, against all evidence, is exclusively "Arab land". Long and complex, but well worth the effort.
cover Myths and Facts: A Guide to the Arab-Israeli Conflict
by Mitchell G. Bard
(Chevy Chase, MD: American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise, 2001).
Very helpful. A well-organized survey, with abundant footnotes and no hidden agenda. Information is current through the middle of 2001.
  Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide
by Bat Yeor
(Cranbury, NJ: Associated University Presses, 2002).
Bat Yeor is an independent scholar, living in Switzerland and writing in French, born into the large Egyptian Jewish community. She became stateless after 1948, and like most of Egypts Jews, was forced to flee. Her several books concentrate on the historic position of religious minorities, especially Jews and Christians, in countries with Muslim rulers. Other books in English include The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians under Islam (2001), and The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam (1996).
Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East
by Michael B. Oren
(New York: Oxford University Press, 2002).
A history of the war that led to the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza by the Israeli Defense Forces.
The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Middle East Conflict
by Mitchell G. Bard
(New York: Alpha Books, 1999). In some ways simpler than Myths and Facts (by the same author), but broader in its coverage than just the Arab-Israeli conflict.
The Forgotten Millions: The Jewish Exodus From Arab Lands
Malka Shulewitz, ed.
(Continuum, 2001). A collection of essays (including Bat Yeor, above) on the subject of the Jewish refugees from Muslim countries in the Middle East.
