Fresh from the success of her memoir, A Beirut Heart: One Woman’s War, Cathy Sultan now offers readers further insight into the disturbing and seemingly unsolvable situation in the Middle East. Israeli and Palestinian Voices: A Dialogue with Both Sides is part adventure, part history, part travelogue, all bound together with a startling collection of interviews which this courageous housewife from Wisconsin conducted first-head in a variety of sometimes not very safe places.
Her cinematic account of a narrow escape from Ramallah into East Jerusalem prior to a military assault on the town leaves the reader breathless. This book is a continuance of the author’s bold quest to bring peace to a region tragically gripped by obduracy and fanaticism. Readers will be astounded at the poignant and sometimes frightening opinions of the ordinary people Sultan meets and interviews.
