About this product
- DescriptionIn 2000, a group of Israeli and Palestinian teachers gathered to address what to many people seemed an unbridgeable gulf between the two societies. Struck by how different the standard Israeli and Palestinian textbook histories of the same events were from one ather, they began to explore how to disarm the teaching of the history of the Middle East in Israeli and Palestinian classrooms. The result is a riveting dual narrative of Israeli and Palestinian history. <i>Side by Side</i> comprises the history of two peoples, in separate narratives set literally side-by-side, so that readers can track each against the other, ting both where they differ as well as where they correspond. The unique and fascinating presentation has been translated into English and is w available to American audiences for the first time. An eye-opening and inspiring new approach to thinking about one of the world s most deeply entrenched conflicts, <i>Side by Side</i> is a breakthrough book that will spark a new public discussion about the bridge to peace in the Middle East.
