Reviews

WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE

"The best and most comprehensive work there is in the English language on this subject."
--New York Times

"Powerful... Remarkable freshness and originality... Leaves no aspect of the complex Arab-Jewish relationship untouched... Presented in an abundance of narratives, anecdotes, and conversations that never seem hackneyed."
--New York Times Book Review

"A rich, penetrating, and moving portrayal of Arab-Jewish hostility, told in human terms."
--Newsday

"Finally a Western journalist has left the experts and the elites for the people themselves. Shipler has penetrated far into foreign feelings and foreign cultures. And he writes with great moral poise."
--New Republic

"Critical yet compassionate, Arab and Jew offers a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to learn about these neighbors and enemies living uneasily side by side."
--USA Today

"With an eye for detail and subtleties, Shipler provides anecdotes that are rich in meaning."
--Israel Today

"The picture Shipler paints is chilling.... Poignant."
--Chicago Tribune

"A superb journalistic meditation that captures the Middle East's mirror image of intolerance."
--Philadelphia Inquirer
