Review quote

Professor Beitler's searching analysis of the first Intifada provides lucid confirmation of the fact that, on both sides, force alone cannot bring peace. She applies her conclusions to the current second Intifada and offers to this blood-drenched region a powerful, practical voice for peace... -- Tim Lomperis, Saint Louis University This timely book vividly describes the tragedy of the Israeli-Palestinian encounter and the action-reaction cycle of violence engulfing both sides. It is a revealing and sobering account of one government's attempt to deal effectively with insurgent forces. A penetrating and rare analysis of the strategies and tactics of counterinsurgency in the Middle East. -- Stephanie G. Neuman, Columbia University Professor Beitler's searching analysis of the first Intifada provides lucid confirmation of the fact that, on both sides, force alone cannot bring peace. She applies her conclusions to the current "second" Intifada and offers to this blood-drenched region a powerful, practical voice for peace. -- Tim Lomperis, Saint Louis Universityshow more
