The Jew, according to the Arab stereotype, is a brutal, violent coward; the Arab, to the prejudiced Jew, is a primitive creature of animal vengeance and cruel desires. In this monumental work, revised and more relevant than ever, David Shipler delves into the origins of the prejudices that have been intensified by war, terrorism, nationalism, and the failure of the peace process.
The best and most comprehensive work there is in the English language on this subject. (Walter Laqueur, The New York Times)
A rich, penetrating, and moving portrayal of Arab-Jewish hostility, told in human terms. (Newsday)
