    Story

    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.

    Ann says: "more a psychology than a history"
    "Unbiased view of the Israel vs Palestine situation"
    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up Arab and Jew in three words, what would they be?

    unbiased, thorough, facinating


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No main character, the examples of the characters both Arab and Israeli brought the book to lifes and made me care about both issues.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Blumenfeld’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I felt like he was having a conversation. Never felt like it was being read, or like a lecture.


    If you could give Arab and Jew a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Israel and Palestine Hot Bed of Controversy
    Nobody wins. Both sides loose.


    Any additional comments?

    Facinating history on current ongoing events. Makes the ongoing conflict much more clear.
