Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The state of Israel celebrates its 50th anniversary on May 14, 1998. Here in one volume is the definitive history and atlas of the young Jewish nation from ancient Palestine to the ongoing peace negotiations. Ten editors and correspondents of The New York Times (including five Pulitzer Prize winners) examine the political, military, and social evolution of Israeli statehood. With journalistic objectivity and onsite experience, these 10 writers present exclusive reports on major historical events, including British rule, the Israeli War of Independence, the Yom Kippur War, PLO terrorism, Camp David, and the ever-changing confluence of religion and politics that has become the Middle East. In addition, selected articles and photographs are edited from The New York Times archives for inclusion in this remarkable volume. Israel's variable borders, settlements, and conflicts over the past five decades are expertly displayed in 50 specially commissioned maps from historical cartographer Malcolm Swanston.
