SAUDI ARAMCO WORLD - Life at the Crossroads

This is a comprehensive yet concise chronicle of Gaza's history from ancient times to the end of the 2008-2009 Israeli war against the territory's Hamas-led administration. The author, a former BBC Middle East correspondent, illustrates the part of his narrative that deals with recent times with material taken from interviews with Gaza residents. The story he tells is grimly ironic: A prosperous trading city at the crossroads of successive civilizations has been forced, in the space of a century, into poverty and isolation. This book is particularly useful for its succinct account of Gaza's role in Palestinian politics from the start of the first intifada onwards.
