There Muslims, Jews, and Christians lived, worked, and celebrated together—and it was commonplace for the Arabs of Jaffa to attend a wedding at the house of the Jewish Chelouche family or for Jews and Arabs to both gather at the Jewish spice shop Tiv and the Arab Khamis Abulafias twenty-four-hour bakery. Through intimate personal interviews and generations-old memoirs, letters, and diaries, Adam Le Bor gives us a crucial look at the human lives behind the headlines—and a vivid narrative of cataclysmic change. 16 pages of photographs- 3 maps.
