By mid-2004, Palestinian attacks, including suicide bombings, directed at Israelis in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and inside Israel, resulted in approximately 1,000 deaths. Israel responded by reoccupying parts of the West Bank and Gaza, killing about 3,000 Palestinians, the majority of whom were civilians.
Encyclopedia of the Palestinians, Revised Edition is the definitive source for high school students, undergraduates, and general readers who want an account of these people and their long history. Much has happened since the first edition was published, including the breakdown of negotiations at Camp David, the subsequent outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, the death of Yasir Arafat, and the election of Mahmud Abbas, commonly known as Abu Mazen, as president of the Palestinian Authority. This comprehensive resource includes entries on recent developments and personalities, updates of many of the existing entries, and approximately 50 black-and-white photographs and additional maps. A document section has been added to the end of the book, including entire texts or excerpts of key documents on Palestinian history.
