This account is a product of Irish freelance journalist David Lynch's experiences in the Holy Land. While focusing on the contemporary life of ordinary Palestinians and Israelis, the book also delves into the contested history of the region, providing accessible background to the conflict. It is an exciting, readable description of ordinary life in one of the most contested, newsworthy, and interesting regions on the globe. The book brings to life the stories from both sides of the divide. It includes historical and political background, but it is the ordinary Israelis and Palestinians who take center stage.
