More than any other journalist, Amira Hass has intimate knowledge of the experience of both Israelis and Palestinians. The daughter of concentration camp survivors, Hass has chosen to live in a Palestinian town to provide a firsthand description of what daily life is like for the population, in particular, how the Israeli army behaves and the effects of the army's presence. Writing for the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz and other journals, Hass presents unsettling truths: As the Israeli government measures its success in Palestinian deaths, many Palestinians can chart their victory only in terms of the fear they can inspire. 'The game is now who is more afraid, and who is less afraid of dying,' Hass writes.
Stark, simple analysis underpinned by exemplary interviews and a fine historical and moral sense.'Mark Mazower, New Statesman
