Between River and Sea: Encounters in Israel and Palestine by Dervla Murphy
Murphy describes with passionate honesty the experience of her most recent journeys to Israel and Palestine. Whether in Jewish homes in the settlements or in a Palestinian refugee camp on the West Bank, she talks with whomever she meets, trying to understand them with her customary curiosity, her empathy and her openness to the experience. Having witnessed the disruption created by the barrier between Israel and the West Bank, she comes to believe that the only viable future lies in a single democratic state of Israel/Palestine, based on one person, one vote - the One-State Solution. ""Her book is a kind of wake up call to the world...""--Colm Toibin, Irish Times.
