Talking to the Enemy: Violent Extremism, Sacred Values, and What it Means to Be Human Reviews
This book made me sad and hopeful at the same time. It is smarter and more enlightening than a dozen other books about this subject I've read before. There is no easy solution to radicalism but what we are doing right now is definitely not helping. Only if we really understand what goes on in these people we can affect change.Every politician fighting terror should read it, every Israeli, every Palestinian should - the other side is not crazy, they can be understood.Read it if you have a curious mind and tell others about it!
Very good book introduced me to a lot of new information about unfamiliar people places and ideas.
