Two rabbis, visiting Palestine in 1897, observed that the land was like a bride, 'beautiful, but married to another man'. By which they meant that, if a place was to be found for Israel in Palestine, where would the people of Palestine go? This is a dilemma that Israel has never been able to resolve.

No conflict today is more dangerous than that between Israel and the Palestinians. The implications it has for regional and global security cannot be overstated. The peace process as we know it is dead and no solution is in sight. Nor, as this book argues, will that change until everyone involved in finding a solution accepts the real causes of conflict, and its consequences on the ground.

Leading writer Ghada Karmi explains in fascinating detail the difficulties Israel's existence created for the Arab world and why the search for a solution has been so elusive. Ultimately, she argues that the conflict will end only once the needs of both Arabs and Israelis are accommodated equally. Her startling conclusions overturn conventional thinking -- but they are hard to refute.

About the Author:

Ghada Karmi is a research fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter. She is the author of several books, including her widely acclaimed memoir, In Search of Fatima.

Review:

'Ghada Karmi's storytelling eloquence is celebrated. Now the sheer power and sense of her analysis throws down a challenge to those who claim the 'problem' of Israel and Palestine cannot be solved. She shows it can'. John Pilger

'The demise of the two-state solution makes Ghada Karmi's work a compelling read. Her book is well-written and extraordinarily honest. Her bold vision of a single egalitarian state for Palestinians and Israelis is the only way to break the current log jam and bring an end to Apartheid Israel.' Dr Nur Masalha, Reader in Religion and Politics, Director of the Centre for Religion and History and of the Holy Land Research Project, St Mary's University College, University of Surrey

'Ghada Karmi's direct and incisive prose is a welcome contribution to a field overburdened by ambiguous, hesitant and evasive contributions. The destructive impact Zionism had on the Arab world at large and on Palestine in particular is presented in this book with lucidity and clarity longtime overdue. Similarly, the book provides the best refutation so far of the two-states solution as the only means of solving the conflict in Palestine. And finally, and most importantly, the book introduces in the most convincing manner the merit of the one state solution as a settlement that would benefit all concerned: the Palestinians wherever they are, the Israelis and the Middle East as a whole. A must read!' Ilan Pappe, author of A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples

'Two rabbis visited Palestine in 1897 to examine its suitablity as a Jewish state and observed that the land was like a bride "beautiful but married to another man." This dilemma - the displacement of the Palestinian people - is the subject of this book, also published to mark the 40th year of occupation. These days the conflict is more than just of interest and danger for those directly concerned - it has implications for the whole world. The peace process as we know it is dead and there is no solution in sight. But Karmi, one of our most renowned commentators on the Isreali-Palestinian conflict, has some startling ideas and conclusions in this fascinating book.' Hampstead and Highgate Express
