There are few more compelling and more tragic issues in the world today than the bitter struggle between Palestinians and Israelis. Their tiny patch of land, desperately crowded and with few resources, has been a focus for so many years of rival claims and counter-claims that it has become almost impossible to make sense of the daily reporting. The best guide to the region is Anton La Guardia's highly acclaimed Holy Land, Unholy War. More than any other book, Holy Land, Unholy War disentangles myths and realities and gives a brilliantly clear and thoughtful picture of an unhappy place. This new edition is fully revised and updated to late 2006.

`An excellent piece of dispassionate reportage, stuffed with information and -- useful pointers, part history, part social commentary' Jewish Chronicle
`Anton La Guardia's beautifully written new account provides fresh insights that expand our understanding ... an impressive achievement' -- Washington Post
`The strength of Anton La Guardia's book is that it attempts to balance these competing histories. He strives to deal fairly with each, but that does not mean he ends up with bland judgments. His verdict on both sides is harsh' Guardian
