This is an examination of the intricate relationships that have evolved between Arabs and Jews as they have dwelled together in Israel and in territories under Israeli control. The author presents a portrait of people whose perceptions have been changed by war, religion, nationalism and political conflict. The author's purpose is not to travel over the old ground of the political or military dimensions of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Instead he has sought out the human dimensions of the people involved - Muslims, Arabs, Jews and Christians; Bedouins, Israeli Arabs and West Bank Palestinians; and Israeli Jews from across the spectrum of religious and political conviction. "Arab and Jew" won the Pulitzer Prize on its American publication in 1986.
