"[Bunton] demolishes various myths, starting with the "ahistorical" idea that this is an "ancient and religious" conflict, showing rather that it is one between two peoples claiming the same land...The inclusion of key documents and useful maps helps make this perhaps the best volume to recommend to nonspecialists at all levels, including advanced scholars in other fields." --CHOICE
