Note: 
Despite his use of the ubiquitous but objectionable term "occupied territory" instead of "disputed territory" or West Bank, the author brings remarkable objectivity to this book of questions and answers. Each chapter is posed as a question, with related questions within it. The chapter organization is topical but the overall narrative is chronological, bringing some coherence to a complex subject. The writing style is brisk and succinct. Both Israelis and Palestinians are criticized but the author's intent seems to be not blame, but understanding. A drab format will require some adult encouragement if young people are to read this compelling and well-paced book.
