The struggle between Israelis and Palestinians has proven to be one of the most complex and intractable conflicts of our time, persisting for more than a century despite the efforts of leaders in both the Middle East and the West. In National Minority, Regional Majority, Yitzhak Reiter reexamines the relationship between the Jewish majority and the Palestinian Arab minority in Israel, focusing on the unique dynamic at work there between a religiously and ethnically defined majority and a significant national minority with assurance and erudition. Reiter explores the complex factors that influence the ethnonational conflict. Drawing extensively on the theory of "interlocking conflicts," the author chronicles the pattern of alternating tranquility and rebellion in Jewish-Arab relations.

Reiter (Political Science, Bar-Ilan University) reexamines the conflict between Israel's Jewish majority and Palestinian Arab minority, placing it within the context of the broader interlocking conflicts in the Middle East. Focusing on the unique dynamic at work between a religiously and ethnically defined majority and a significant national minority, he chronicles the pattern of alternating tranquility and rebellion in Jewish-Arab relations. Reiter concludes that the Israeli government must play a key role in de-escalating the conflict, and suggests areas in which it can take action.
