From Library Journal:

The Sorek Valley to the east of Jerusalem is the setting for documentary-like work by two journalists who portray how Palestinian Arabs and Jews in this land intermingled and how their lives are intertwined in the web of political development from the mid-19th century through the present. The authors show how the Palestinian Arab community became attached to their land in Ottoman Turkish times and how Zionism in Europe brought Jews seeking a national refuge in biblical Palestine. The story covers the period of the British mandate, the establishment of Israel, and all the subsequent wars. The current Palestinian nationalistic uprising, the intifada , is also included, to provide a current context for the Arab-Israeli conflict. A historical overview that personalizes the agony of both Palestinian Arabs and Jews, this will appeal to a wide audience.

From Publishers Weekly:

Just over 40 years ago, the Sorek Valley, winding from the Jerusalem Hills to the Mediterranean coast, was dominated by Palestinian Arab farmers. Under the U.N. partition plan of 1947, the valley, now in Israel, was to become part of a new Arab nation. Birthplace of biblical strongman Samson, site of Jewish guerrilla Bar Kochba's famed revolt against Roman emperor Hadrian, the Sorek Valley, as pictured here, is a microcosm of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Vivid, observant, achingly poignant, this illuminating chronicle by two American foreign correspondents emphasizes recent history, when the "edgy friendship" between Jewish and Arab residents gave way to rioting, mutual boycotts, war and the flight of destitute Palestinians to refugee camps now exploding with anger.
