Overview

The Jew, according to the Arab stereotype, is a brutal, violent coward; the Arab, to the prejudiced Jew, is a primitive creature of animal vengeance and cruel desires. In this monumental work that won the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction in 1986, now extensively revised and more relevant than ever, David Shipler delves into the origins of the prejudices that have been intensified by war, terrorism, and nationalism.
