Product description

Review

'Lives in Common is a work of deeply humane scholarship. It has been criticised by some as an expression of nostalgia for an irretrievable past or wishful thinking about an unattainable future. Yet Klein is neither a hopeless romantic or an ivory tower academic. He helped draw up the Geneva initiative for Israeli-Palestinian peace and, when Israel and the PLO were still negotiating, acted as an adviser to the Palestinian side - a remarkable example of open-minded commitment to a common good.' --The Guardian

'Drawing on diaries, memoirs and correspondence, Klein weaves a dazzling tapestry of complicated, sometimes fraught, but always intermingled connections between Jews, Muslims and Christians in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Hebron. Richly detailed and profoundly evocative, Lives in Common adds greatly to our understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its human cost.' -- --Haaretz

'Taking a new and original approach, Klein draws heavily on the diaries and memoirs of ordinary people, elevating his book beyond the usual leader-based perspectives or histories emanating from official documents. . . a significant achievement in scholarship and humanism.' --Christian Science Monitor
