The list author says: "This is a list of fairly balanced books on Israelis, Palestinians, and the conflict. I've spent many years studying the Middle East academically and I hope you will find this list useful in giving you a deeper understanding of current politics in the region."
"This book is written by a journalist, so it's more focused on stories than wider history or analysis. Still, I found the writer to be a great storyteller who was deeply interested in the subject and fair to his interviewees despite disagreeing with them."
"This book is not what one might call "balanced" because it presents one perspective on the conflict. The writer openly acknowledges this. That said, it is an interesting and important perspective to learn about."
"This isn't a political book, but it does share important information on Israel. I'm interested in it because I think perhaps Israel's start up culture could be used to come up with creative solutions for peace."
