The Jew, the Arab: A History of the Enemyby Gil Anidjar
Europe and only Europe is the arena that Anidjar (Middle East and Asian languages, Columbia U.) considers as he investigates how the enemy becomes an enemy, and traces the history of that particular enemy that is inscribed within and between the polarized identities of Jew and Arab. Maybe not so much a history, he says, as an account for why no history has been written. He has not indexed his work. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
