In Enemies and Neighbors: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel, 1917-2017
(Atlantic Monthly Press, 2017), Ian Black
, the former Middle East Editor of the Guardian
, offers a comprehensive view of the past and present of what would ultimately become known as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Drawing on a range of sources, the book aims to offer a balanced and clear narrative of a history that has become infamously contested.
