This is an examination of the intricate relationships that have evolved between Arabs and Jews as they have dwelled together in Israel and in territories under Israeli control. The author presents a portrait of people whose perceptions have been changed by war, religion, nationalism and political conflict. The author's purpose is not to travel over the old ground of the political or military dimensions of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Instead he has sought out the human dimensions of the people involved - Muslims, Arabs, Jews and Christians; Bedouins, Israeli Arabs and West Bank Palestinians; and Israeli Jews from across the spectrum of religious and political conviction. "Arab and Jew" won the Pulitzer Prize on its American publication in 1986.

This was a GREAT book! - Beautifully written - Certainly deserved the Pulitzer Prize it won. Really "tells it like it is" in Israel during the 80's mostly. Really gives a vivid picture of both the Israelis and the Arabs. There's no way you can hear the news after reading this without understanding so much more - about both sides - than before you read it. Highly recommended.

This book is a noble dissection of the Arab-Israeli conflicts, mostly up through 1987 with new annotations of current events. Shipler lets the people of Palestine do the talking here; we are privy to countless conversations of crimes, prejudices, and judgments between the two warring peoples. This is the key to the book's success, as through the myriad of voices we get a true picture of the devastation that a news story or textbook cannot convey with such immediacy. Also of note is the thin ray of light throughout the latter portion of the book, where Shipler shares stories of both groups coming together, seemingly clandestinely, in order to learn more about the other and their feelings about the conflict. Peaceful relations are snuffed out almost as soon as they begin, but the effort is what counts here. The juxtaposition between the good and the bad sets this book apart; unfortunately it could have been more impactful if the book was more well-edited. The one weakness of Arab and Jew is that after awhile it becomes different variations on a theme, with endless stories that resemble others told countless times before it. It is important for each voice to be heard of course, but its length seemed to me to rob the book of a bit of its urgency, and it was in all honesty a bit tough to finish. Still, worthy reading for anyone interested in learning more about the people of Palestine.

Great read to better understand world history and polictics.

Very informative but becomes tedious. Not unlike the whites & blacks in USA. Festering soars that never heal and are constantly "rubbed in" as salt to a wound. A Nation state fraught with hate instilled by both from birth. So sad.

Sorry Mr. Shipler this book was just not written with me in mind ???
And how could it have been? We don't even know each other!!!
Mr.Twister
This book offers a detailed history of the Arab world. For people interested in knowing more about how the Middle East has arrived at where it is in Year 2014, I think this will be a very worthwhile read.

It was a realistic representation of the situation there. I recommend it!
This was an outstanding book. Over 500 pages packed full of information and insight. The book goes in depth on the problems in Israel and the Middle East. Not just the problems that we hear about on TV. But the people problems. The author goes to the deep underlying problems. The people and their customes and beliefs. Covering the stereo types, the religious differences, their histories. The book interviews people about their fears. The author talks to both Arabs and Jews. He talks to Christians, Muslims and Jews. He reviews incidents of terrorism on all sides of the conflict.
This is a must read book if you are interested in understanding the problems of the Middle East. Although it is full of information it is not hard to read. It goes a long way at explaining things. We all know that the problems in the Middle East are not easy to solve but this book showed me how truly deep the problems run. The prejudices from all sides are astounding.
This is an outstanding piece of writing and research! Read it and enjoy.
