In this startling new interpretation of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, Bernard Wasserstein focuses on largely neglected forces demographic, economic, and social that have shaped the politics of the region but have also made the two societies so interdependent that they must make peace in order to survive.
"Readers who care about the [Israeli-Palestinian] conflict should not overlook Bernard Wasserstein’s lucid attempt to look at it from some unusual angles. . . . A helpful and original introduction to the conflict." Warren Bass, Washington Post Book World
"Reasoned and balanced, [this book] makes a compelling case that demographic, socio-economic, environmental, and territorial imperatives must eventually bring Israelis and Palestinians to a peaceful resolution." Eric Silver, Jewish Chronicle
"In this short and elegant essay, [Wasserstein] slips in a good deal of history. . . . The rationality of the arguments is impressive." David Pryce-Jones, Sunday Times (London)
"Wasserstein’s readable text is a solid primer on Israelis and Palestinians for experts and neophytes, characterized by a hardheaded realism that is fair to both sides." Foreign Affairs
