    Given the Palestinians' far higher birth rate, the implementation of a 'right of return', even by the most conservative estimates, would be tantamount to Israel's transformation into an 'ordinary' Arab state. Its origins, and that of the wider Arab-Israeli conflict, are deeplyrooted in Jewish-Arab confrontation and appropriation in Palestine.

    Qualities Applicable Recommendation Veteran grant writers and nonprofit funding development specialists Ellen Karsh and Arlen Sue Fox again combine their vast experience in this updated third edition of their best-selling handbook for preparing successful grant proposals to foundations and government agencies. In Karsh gave his archives, including his negatives, to the National Archives of Canada, where Jerry Fielder, his former apprentice, became the curator of the collection. Here, Karsh's portraits are elucidated and complemented both by his own recollections and by the text of veteran curator David Travis. Its origins, and that of the wider Arab-Israeli conflict, are deeplyrooted in Jewish-Arab confrontation and appropriation in Palestine. He argues that the main impetus has been provided by regional factors; and that - even at their weakest point in modern history, during the final stages of the Ottoman Empire - the peoples in the Middle East have played an active role in the restructuring of their region.

    Neither a celebration of the war nor an indictment of it, The Gulf Conflict is a comprehensive account that reveals the interaction of all the parties involved. During a thirty-five-year career, he organized more than exhibitions, which toured museums in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and he has published many foundational texts in the field. The book relies mainly on Western published sources and official British documents. It is an arresting story of delicate political and diplomatic maneuvering by leading figures - David Ben-Gurion, Hajj Amin Husseini, Abdel Rahman Azzam, King Abdullah, Ernest Bevin and Harry Truman - over the years leading up to partition, through the slide to war and its enduring consequences. The unique value of The Gulf Conflict, however, lies in the novelty of its analysis.
