Contested Space: Maps in Teaching About Israel

By Derek J. Penslar

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), March 2008

The author discusses the use of maps, including their potential to reveal or deceive, in Israel education. He asserts that the knowledge of when Israel assumed control of the territories in which its population currently lives is a necessary precondition for intelligent debate over the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and any potential peace accord.
