In the past two years, the hope of peace between the peoples of Israel and Palestine has collapsed, replaced by an increasingly savage cycle of revenge. Why? Can we understand both the politics and the anguish, the human face of this catastrophe? In The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Crisis in the Middle East, the correspondents and photojournalists of Reuters illuminate this conflict with unmatched insight, objectivity, and balance. Reporters who have been present at the key moments of history answer questions that cry out for answers: How did it come to this? What is the role of history, economics, and land? What is the role of religion, and the unique meaning of the city of Jerusalem? What are the Palestinian and Israeli views? From Arafat and Sharon to Carter, Clinton, and Bush, how have individual leaders shaped the struggle? What impact will today's events have on tomorrow's Middle East, and on the rest of the world? Above all, who are these people? What are they enduring, and what may their future hold? The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict tells the story of the Israeli-Palestinian relationship through stunning new photographs and a compelling narrative that places the events of recent months -- and decades -- in their full context.

After more than half a century of warfare and human suffering, a peace settlement in the Middle East appears to be as elusive as ever.
Using compelling pictures, evocative text and detailed graphics, Reuters journalists report from the front line of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis and offer a unique and unbiased insight into one of the world's most intractable conflicts.
The book examines the failures of diplomacy and the dashed hopes that have scarred generations of Israelis and Palestinians. Top Reuters foreign correspondents, who have witnessed every twist and turn in Arab-Israeli history, provide unmatched perspective and analysis.
Award-winning Reuters photographers illustrate the turmoil from both sides, capturing dignity and hope as well as rage and revenge. One chapter carries vivid images of those caught in the crossfire of today's violence; another looks at key leaders through the eyes of those correspondents who witnessed defining moments of the past decades.
The book examines the roots of the current Palestinian uprising, or Intifada, illustrates the dedication of those who are working for peace and paints a portrait of the beautiful and tormented city of Jerusalem.
Drawing on guiding principles of neutrality, balance and objectivity, Reuters correspondents have charted every step of the conflict.About the Author:
