ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "Shared Land/Conflicting Identity: Trajectories of Israeli and Palestinian Symbol Use," edited by Robert C. Rowland and David A. Frank. This book argues that rhetoric, ideology, and myth have been key in influencing the development of the 100-year conflict between first the Zionist settlers and the current Israeli people and the Palestinian residents in what is now Israel. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is usually treated as an issue of land and water. The authors claim symbolic practices deeply influenced the Oslo Accords, and explain how various Israeli and Palestinian texts and other symbolic negotiations have helped facilitate or hinder the search for lasting peace in these contested lands.
