I dont know about a good book but I can give you a few places to start.
Apparently Israelis have only been on the land once before in history... I have seen other articles that show Zionism being around long before 1880,
but I haven't gone that far bak myself just yet.
1880 -1897 - both to do with Zionism and the creation of the movement.
WW1 and Zionism - Check out Balfour declaration
England 1918 / 1948 - Occupation
WW2 and Zionism - A little bit about NAZI's and Zionists.
Zionism 1948 - Genocide in Palestine.
That is just an outline.. In between you will find plenty of information concerning the modern conflict at least. It is important to go right back to
the beginning of the Zionist movement though and also see what those guys were planning 50 years prior to the actual occupation of Palestine.
You probably already know most of it but I thought I would throw it out their anyway just incase you didn't. If its just a book your looking for, then
I have no idea. Hope you find what your looking for.
