Israel"—Simha Flapan, Ilan Pappe, Benny Morris, and himself—and who as a result have come to be called "the Israeli revisionist, or new, historians. The authors do a good job of relating the history of Israel and its conflicts in these works, although much of the material they cover has been dealt with in previous literature.
What makes these books revisionist is their use of new documentation and new perspectives to challenge the traditional view on a number of issues that have generally been handled in a manner more favorable to Israel than its adversaries.
This effort is not based solely on a reinterpretation of existing evidence but also makes considerable use of Israeli archival materials released over the past decade along with information from other sources and interviews. The two books under review here are not military histories set in a political context, but rather political histories in which the military establishment plays a vital role in the creation of national policy.
Morris's book is exceptionally comprehensive in its scope, working from a broad base of primary and secondary material, much of the latter in Hebrew. Shlaim's work is more analytical and many chapters begin with an election, a new leader and cabinet, and then proceed to demonstrate the impact of these political changes upon Israel's conflict with the Palestinians and the Arab states.
Most of these people had military experience and many exercised high command, which in turn influenced their political views towards the Arabs and the peace process.
Morris devotes five chapters, one third of his book, to the modern Israeli state's prehistory: the Zionist movement and the early Jewish immigration to Palestine; the shifting relationships of the immigrants with the resident Arab population; the impact of World War I, with its various treaties and promises, on the Arab-Zionist relationship; the turmoil of the Mandate period and World War II; and the Israeli War of Independence.
Again, these are episodes that have received extensive coverage in mainstream Israeli historiography; what the revisionists provide is new interpretations of these episodes, made possible to some extent by new evidence from the Israeli archives. This has enabled historians like Morris and Shlaim to take their distance from the conventional histories of Israel, which often portrayed the Jews as innovative, hard working, and altruistic, as opposed to the Arabs, who come off as primitive, mercenary, and hostile to both newcomers and change.
Morris does not depart entirely from those views, instead refuting them in part, and portraying a Jewish leadership that alternated between exploiting, bribing, and ignoring the Arabs and their emerging aspirations, particularly after World War I.

British-Israeli Professor Avi Shlaim joined a handful of academics in London earlier this month to debate the future of Zionism, in a panel entitled "Israel at What happened to the Zionist dream? Shlaim, a historian of the Arab-Israeli conflict at Oxford University, made headlines last year when he decided to speak at an Oxford Union debate in favor of the motion, "This house believes that one state is the only solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. But Shlaim, an opponent of campaigns pursued by some of his British colleagues to boycott Israeli universities, has always been a fervent supporter of the two-state solution, a stance he repeated in this month's event, which was organized by the Institute of Ideas. He continues, he said, to believe in Israel's legitimacy to exist within its pre borders, but "rejects uncompromisingly the Zionist colonial project beyond the Green Line. In his talk, entitled "Obsession with Territory Post," Shlaim blasts the settlements, which he says have turned Israel into an apartheid state, as the primary source of failure for peace efforts with the Palestinians.
