To learn more about the conflict in the Middle East, I read the book “A Season of Stones” by Helen Winternitz. 

“A Season of Stones” (Atlantic Monthly Press, 1991) is a haunting look at the effect the establishment of Israel has had on the people who have inhabited Palestine since before the first Hebrews settled there centuries ago. 

Author Helen Winternitz, an award-winning journalist, lived among Palestinian villagers in the five-hundred-year-old stone houses of Nahalin during the time of the first Palestinian uprising against Israel.  She spent a year learning the language, the customs, the structure of village society,  and saw the devastation brought upon these people by Israeli rule.  For a better  review of this book, go to http://www.enotes.com/season-stones-salem/season-stones    Then buy a copy of the book and read it.
