    David Shipler delves into the origins of the prejudices of Jews and Arabs that have been intensified by war, terrorism, and nationalism. Focusing on the diverse cultures that exist side by side in Israel and Israeli-controlled territories, Shipler examines the process of indoctrination that begins in schools; he discusses the far ranging effects of socioeconomic differences, historical conflicts between Islam and Judaism, attitudes about the Holocaust, and much more.

    Overall

    While facinated by this subjected, I was was underwhelmed by this audiobook. The narration is tedious. The narrative is nonexistent. There is no direction to the disjointed melange of blather. Considering that I am biased when it comes to this subject, I expected some sort of emotional stir when listening to this book, whether positive or negative. All I got was drowsy.
