    Any recommendations? Looking for something that's not too biased in either direction (a tough ask, I know), and ideally something that covers the last century at least.

    I'm posting here without comment but have a look at this one.

    I'm sure if you posted in CE your question could garner vastly differing opinions.

    When asked this question before, manton recommended Martin Gilbert's Israel. That is probably a good choice. It is very thorough and well-documented. It is also a bit dry. I borrowed it from the library, was impressed, but don't think I ever got through it.

    While not exclusively about the conflict, Robert Fisk's documentary From Beirut to Bosnia gives a pretty novel view (well, novel for someone living in the US) of the fight between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

    A good book about the subject as it relates to the US is The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, which gives a history of the conflict as it relates to the United States and examines how the conflict has been portrayed to US citizens over the years.
