considered historical research.The book covers key events in
chronological order, in each case examining the varied historical
accounts and presenting the beliefs of key thinkers across the
ideological spectrum, from Edward Said to Binyamin Netanyahu.
Starting the with emergence of the Zionist movement in the
nineteenth century, and the figures who shaped it, the authors go
on to cover the founding of Israel and its subsequent history, up
to and including the 'roadmap for peace', the construction of the
wall, the death of Arafat and the withdrawal from Gaza.Praise for
Bad News from Israel:"This superb study ... is extensive in scope,
and scrupulously fair. It will be a landmark." Edward S. Herman,
co-author (with Noam Chomsky) of Manufacturing Consent
