Book publisher recalls text book with map deemed anti-Israel

(JTA) – McGraw-Hill Education, a major U.S. textbook publisher, announced the recall and planned destruction of a political science book containing maps that are deemed inaccurate and anti- Israel.

The book, Global Politics: Engaging a Complex World, was taken off the publisher’s website and slated for recall and destruction in recent weeks following complaints about the maps, the news site insidehighered.com reported.

The book features four maps of what is now Israel, Gaza and the West Bank and says that it shows “Palestinian loss of land” from 1946 to 2000, with which many historians and supporters of Israel strongly disagree. The critics of these maps argue that they distort key facts, such as Jewish ownership of land before Israel became a country in 1948.

Catherine Mathis, a spokeswoman for McGraw-Hill Education, said a “review determined that the map did not meet our academic standards.”
