About this Book



A challenging and provocative insider's view of the Israel-Palestine conflict

Former President Jimmy Carter clearly wrote Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid with the intention of providing a counterbalance to the usually one-sided pro-Israeli media coverage that Americans tend to hear about the Israel-Palestine conflict. However, a number of expert commentators feel that his presentation of events from the opposite side of the fence is just as, if not more, distorted than the usually pro-Israeli media coverage in the USA.

Unsurprisingly, Jewish groups are up in arms, with the Anti-Defamation League taking out large advertisements in major newspapers last year, when the book was first published in hardcover, accusing Carter of propagating "myths like Jewish control of the government and media" and taking particular offense at the use of the word 'apartheid'. Even Carter appears to contradict the use of that so emotive word during the course...

Interesting Link: The BBC's comprehensive resource of current and historic information about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
