Summary

"When peace talks between Palestinian and Israeli leaders collapsed at Camp David in 2000, a conflict as bloody as any that had ever occurred between the two peoples began. Now David Horovitz - editor of The Jerusalem Report - explores the quotidian and profound effects this conflict and its attendant terrorism have had on the lives of ordinary men, women and children." "Human and harrowing - and yet projecting an unexpected optimism - Still Life with Bombers affords us a remarkably balanced and insightful understanding of a seemingly intractable conflict."--BOOK JACKET.
