    schema:description "This is the first English-language book ever to apply psychoanalytic knowledge to the understanding of the most intractable international struggle in our world today--the Arab-Israeli conflict. Two ethnic groups fight over a single territory that both consider to be theirs by historical right--essentially a rational matter. But close historical examination shows that the two parties to this tragic conflict have missed innumerable opportunities for a rational partition of the territory between them and for a permanent state of peace and prosperity rather than perennial bloodshed and misery. Falk suggests that a way to understand and explain such irrational matters is to examine the unconscious aspects of the conflict. He examines large-group psychology, nationalism, group narcissism, psychogeography, the Arab and Israeli minds, and suicidal terrorism, and he offers psychobiographical studies of Ariel Sharon and Yasser Arafat, two key players in this tragic conflict today."@en ;
