Summary
Offers personal insight from an author who grew up in war-torn Jerusalem into the nature of fanaticism and provides possible approaches to ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Internationally acclaimed novelist Amos Oz grew up in war-torn Jerusalem, where as a boy he witnessed firsthand the poisonous consequences of fanaticism. In two concise, powerful essays, the award-winning author offers unique insight into the true nature of extremism and proposes a reasoned and respectful approach to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He also comments on related issues―the Gaza pullout, Yasser Arafat's death, and the war in Iraq―in an extended interview at the end of the book.

The brilliant clarity of these essays, coupled with Oz’s ironic sense of humor in illuminating the serious, breathes new life into this old debate. Oz argues that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not a war of religion or cultures or traditions, but rather a real estate dispute―one that will be resolved not by greater understanding, but by painful compromise.

Fresh, insightful, and inspiring, How to Cure a Fanatic brings a new voice of sanity to the cacophony on Israeli-Palestinian relations―a voice no one can afford to ignore.
