Shaul Gabbay was born and raised in Tel Aviv. The son of Jewish Arab refugees, he was educated in Israel, received his Ph.D. from Columbia University, and completed his postdoctoral studies at the University of Chicago. Born in Haifa, Amin Kazak became a Palestinian refugee in 1948. Kazak completed advanced degrees from the American University in Beirut, Lebanon, and earned a Ph.D. from the University of Denver. They will discuss their important new book, One Land Two Stories, which reveals differing perspectives about the simmering Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its desperate need for a peaceful resolution. As colleagues who teach this eternal struggle to students in their classrooms, the authors have established a close friendship without denying their opposing viewpoints, and convictions. Where governments repeatedly fail, their mutual respect succeeds. Whether a novice, desiring the ABCs of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, or a seasoned student of history, this book promises deeper understanding of the controversy and why a peace agreement remains elusive.
