Inheriting the Holy Land

Written with feral honesty, Inheriting the Holy Land is an extraordinary synthesis of history, reportage and the coming-of-age memoir by Jennifer Miller.

The author presents groundbreaking perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through interviews with youthful Israelis and Palestinians, and discussions with influential officials in the Middle East, such as Yasir Arafat, Benjamin Netanyahu, Shimon Peres, Colin Powel, James Baker, Ehud Barak, and Mahmoud Abbas.

Miller challenges her biases as an American, a Jew, a woman, and a journalist, the same way she opposes readers to further their own suppositions and prejudices.
