5.0 von 5 Sternen A first-class history of the Israel-Arab conflict
Thousands of books have been written on the Israeli-Arab conflict. Virtually all of these have been partisan. Here we have the first objective history covering the conflict from its 19th century inception right up to the 21st century. "Righteous Victims" is not a history of Israel nor a history of Palestine. It is a history of the conflict and it covers the...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive, but ponderous
I read Avi Shlaim's _Iron Wall_ shortly after finishing this comprehensive history and Morris seems ponderous by comparison. I had to renew his book from the library six times to finish it. Morris upfront about telling readers that he writes from an Israeli perspective, because he has more access to Israeli sources. An interesting review of the book in the March 13,...

Von Ein Kunde
Thousands of books have been written on the Israeli-Arab conflict. Virtually all of these have been partisan. Here we have the first objective history covering the conflict from its 19th century inception right up to the 21st century. "Righteous Victims" is not a history of Israel nor a history of Palestine. It is a history of the conflict and it covers the subject comprehensively, objectively and with acute insight. No serious student of the Middle East can afford to ignore this book.

I read Avi Shlaim's _Iron Wall_ shortly after finishing this comprehensive history and Morris seems ponderous by comparison. I had to renew his book from the library six times to finish it. Morris upfront about telling readers that he writes from an Israeli perspective, because he has more access to Israeli sources. An interesting review of the book in the March 13, 2000 issue of _The Jerusalem Report_ says this is no excuse. Morris could have sought the help of Arabic speakers to read Arab sources.
I was a little taken aback by his casual references to the Israeli attacks on the U.S.S. Liberty in 1967 and on the U.N. headquarters at Kafr Kana in 1995 as regrettable accidents, without mentioning there is considerable interational controversy over whether these attacks were accidental. Still, the book covers a large swathe of history and helps the reader to put the Israeli-Palestinian conflict within a largely demythologized framework.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Righteous Victims: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict, 1881-1998: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict, 1881-1999 (Taschenbuch)
This book, written by Benny Morris, a well known Israeli Professor of History, is a must have for everyone interested in that topic. Digging deep into the Israeli archives, he uncovers the history of Israel with all it's ups & downs. He is not afraid of telling the truth but never takes sides.

Praised by the New York Times, The Washington Post, Financial Times and many more, this is arguably the most comprehensive and objective book every written on the history of the Middle East conflict. If you are interested in this topic or even studying in that field, you won't be able to ignore it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen An anti-Israeli viewpoint and a dishonest Historian, 6. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Beware of this book! Benny Morris is well known for his extreme anti-Israeli politics. See Efraim Karsh's, "Fabricating Israeli History: The New Historians", for example's of Benny Morris' deliberate distortion of historical sources to fit his extreme left wing ideology.

1.0 von 5 Sternen More anti-Zionist tripe from head 'New Historian', 5. Juli 2000
Those who have followed Morris over the last few years know that he doesn't let facts get in the way of his anti-Zionist propaganda. Previous works of his were severely flawed as shown by Karsh, Satloff, Teveth etc., and now the tireless Israel-basher is taken to task by Prof. Anita Shapira, Tel Aviv University, in The New Republic, over his latest 'work'. Yawn. (Much of this book , by the way, is just taken from works of others, though duly given credit. There is little new information in this book.)
