SIDE BY SIDE
Parallel Histories of Israel-Palestine
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Two narratives side by side—Israeli on left-hand pages, Palestinian on right-hand pages—examine the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (up to 2001) by illuminating how differently the two sides see events.
The dual narratives allow readers to track one story against the other, noting where they differ and where they correspond. The authors hope that allowing students to perceive and assess multiple narratives about the same events may undo demonization by each side.
