Giving a thorough and accessible account of the Palestine-Israeli conflict past, present and future, this introduction is jointly authored by an American rabbi and Professor of Judaism, and a Palestinian lecturer on Islam. The result is a real insight into the bitter truths at the heart of this situation, with each author giving full vent to the emotions behind the two sides of the debate without avoiding any issues, however confrontational and conflict-ridden. The conclusion is a direct exchange between the two authors, which raises many further issues, but which does see both sides holding out hope for resolution and a real solution in the future.
