About this title


Profiles two families living near Jerusalem and examines the history of and conflict in this turbulent area

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.
