David Meir-Levi's "brief encounter" offers a solid approach to understanding the basics of the Arab-Israeli conflict, arguably the world's most persistent and polarized political issue. History Upside Down applies great common sense where demagogues and ignorami too often dominate. -- Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum and author of Militant Islam Reaches America
In order for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be resolved, the demonology will have to be taken out of it, and the historical and political facts allowed to speak for themselves dispassionately. David Meir-Levi shows how this can be done. -- David Pryce-Jones, author of Betrayal: France, the Arabs, and the Jews
