Product Details



“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.”
“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
