Amira Hass has intimate knowledge of the experience of both Israelis and Palestinians. The daughter of concentration camp survivors, Hass has chosen to live in a Palestinian town to provide a first-hand description of what daily life is like for the population, in particular how the Israeli army behaves and the effects of the army's presence. Writing for the Israeli newspaper "Ha'aretz" and other journals, Hass presents unsettling truths: as the Israeli government measures its success in Palestinian deaths, many Palestinians can chart their victory only in terms of the fear they can inspire. "The game is now who is more afraid, and who is less afraid of dying," Hass writes.

Industry Reviews

Reporting from Ramallah is frontline stuff, powerful in the accumulation of daily detail.

-Iain Finlayson, The Times Weekend Review
Stark, simple analysis underpinned by exemplary interviews and a fine historical and moral sense.
