Gun and the Olive Branch by David Hirst

Book Description

More than a decade before Israel's New Historians revolutionized the study of Israeli history, English journalist David Hirst wrote The Gun and the Olive Branch, a classic, myth-breaking general history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Hirst, former Middle East correspondent of the Guardian, traces the origins of the terrible conflict back to the 1880s to show how Arab violence, although often cruel and fanatical, is a response to the challenge of repeated aggression. The Gun and the Olive Branch is an absorbing, potentially controversial, history of the Middle Eastern conflict that is indispensable to anyone with an interest in world politics and by partisans of both sides. This classic and controversial account of the origins of the Middle East conflict returns to print updated with a lengthy introduction that reflects on the course of recent Middle Eastern historyespecially the abortive Israeli-Palestinian peace process and 9/11.

Beware of Small States by David Hirst Beware of Small States, Paperback (June 2011)

'Beware of Small States' wrote Mikhail Bukanin in 1870. He could have meant Lebanon: a sectarian state no bigger than Wales that has become battleground for one of the defining conflicts of twentieth-century history. This title gives a history of the country and its conflicts, culminating with the war in Gaza and its fallout in Lebanon.

Giorgio Strehler by David Hirst Giorgio Strehler, Paperback (December 2006)

This detailed study evaluates the particular qualities which typify Strehler's work: the lyrical realism which has become the hallmark of his mature style and his gift of interpretation and production.
