Also the June issue of Le monde diplomatique (LMD) focuses in its Dossier on the 1967 war in the Middle East and its consequences, as well does the bitterlemons-international.org roundtable by publishing it’s weekly edition this friday under the theme: June 1967, 40 years later: a regional view.
Both are again good sources to update ones knowledge on the events which in part influenced and shaped further today’s problems and conflicts of the region.
To mention are the articles for the english edition of LMD written by Meron Rapoport and Henry Laurens and an extra supplementary text by Bassma Kodani (CV as pdf) which so far I only found in the german paper edition and as french online version. Sorrily I only could get access for the french text of her article Une gÃ©nÃ©ration arabe traumatisÃ©e par la dÃ©faite, which but gives a good introduction to those not very familiar with the context of the events of the region.
