This is a photo album of today's West Bank and Gaza. Represented are the people who together act and react in the cauldron that is Israel and the Middle East. Notwithstanding the aims of Yasser Arafat and others, it will ultimately be these people and their neighbors who will make or break any peace in this troubled area, the authors point out. Although the Wallach's have assembled good narratives and captured valuable data and emotions, the book is not up to the quality found in David Grossman's Yellow Wind and Fawaz Turki's Soul in Exile (both, LJ 4/15/88). Those two together are better written, more emotive, and more persuasive. However, if only one volume can be bought, this might do. Yellow Wind was an LJ Best Book of 1988; see the January issue, p.40.
