Demonstrate how to write a historiography paper on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It’s different than an essay or a research paper in that it needs to summarize and analyzes historians’ changing arguments and interpretations of a historical topic. Focus on the conditions leading to statehood in 1948. The writer must use four sources, two of which must be books, and the remainder may be journaled articles or chapters in books. The books to use for the paper are “Caught in the Middle East: U.S. Policy toward the Arab-Israeli Conflict, 1945-1961” by Peter L. Hahn and “1948: A History of the First Arab-Israeli War” by Benny Morris.
