In 2007, I embarked on writing a history of Palestinian Arabs for the blog. I never finished it, but what I did write I am pretty proud of (although some of the links don't work anymore.)
I just posted it as its own page. It is quite long for a blog post - 19,000 words, about a third of the size of many books.
Since I have many more readers today than I did in 2007, I hope that you enjoy it and learn something.
