An incisive report on the West Bank Barrier—one of the most significant developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in our lifetime

The Washington Post - Linda Gradstein

Despite its flaws, this book, with its helpful chronology, is the most detailed account of the barrier to date. Backmann places the barrier smack in the middle of the controversy over Israeli confiscation of Palestinian lands: He makes a compelling case that Israel set out to expand West Bank Jewish settlements on the Israeli side at the expense of thousands of acres of Palestinian territory.
