Israelis and Palestinians have been caught in what seems a forever war with routine terror in the promised land for more than 100 years. This book is the first to bring together commentary and anguished personal insights from people on both sides of the battle. Readers get a personal look at-and a clearer, more nuanced understanding of-the psychological trauma that is common for men, women and children there. Psychologists in the regions, as well as scholars from across disciplines, tell their personal stories, interwoven with academic reflections on important issues fueling the conflict such as humiliation, revenge, hate, and the need for a homeland and identity. Readers are brought face-to-face with controversial issues, like the psychological impact of Israel's Separation Wall, and unique perspectives, including the stories of eight Palestinian female martyrs, the insights of a young student helping to save blasted bodies after the bombing of a bus, the compassion of a Jewish doctor treating suicide bombers, the thinking of a Jidhadist woman raised to hate Jews but now working for peace with Israelis, and a doctor bringing together Palestinians and Israelis using meditation to find peace.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Terror in the Holy Land: Inside the Anguish of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict offers up new analysis and psychological understanding of the ongoing and lasting traumas to the peoples on both sides, and is the first to blend analysis from both a social and psychological viewpoint in the process of describing conflicts and national identity crises. These essays cover everything from terrorism's impact to occupation's lasting conflicts, and provide a unique, multi-faceted survey of complex issues which goes far beyond the usual political focus. A top pick for any college-level collection strong in Middle East politics and psychology." - The Bookwatch/Internet Bookwatch
"Bringing together 31 contributions from professionals in mental health and related disciplines, this collection explores some of the myriad psychosocial issues relevant to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Kuriansky presents the papers in four sections that provide context and describe the overall psychological effects of the conflict; explore key psychosocial issues including revenge, humiliation, imbalance of power, and search for identity in groups; explore the experiences of women and children caught in the conflict; and discuss therapeutic and educational efforts for understanding, coping, and reconciliation." - Reference & Research Book News
