"In this in-the-trenches account of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, award-winning journalist Matt Rees takes us deep within Israeli and Palestinian societies to reveal the fractures at the core of both. While the world focuses almost exclusively on the violent clash between the two camps, Rees steers our gaze toward their centers, exposing the internal rifts that drain each society of its ability to act cohesively. The Palestinians focus on the occupation of the West Bank, the Jewish settlers, and other Israeli actions, while the Israelis see only the intifada and the suicide bombings - and both overlook their bitter infighting. This narrative goes behind the familiar moves of the big players to reveal the individuals who are at war not only with the enemy, but also with their own people." "With heartbreaking detail, incisive revelations, and terrible and often moving stories of the human beings behind the intractable attitudes and violence, Rees offers a bold new perspective on this tragic and seemingly insoluble situation. In so doing, he also offers hope - the hope that by turning the spotlight inward, these societies might heal their internal wounds and move toward a peaceful future."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
