About the Author

Dávid Kaposi was born in a football stadium in Budapest. It is from that time that his interest in the human affairs dates. Having written about the work of novelist Imre Kertész and the exchange between philosopher Hannah Arendt and historian Gershom Scholem, he has also come to appreciate that life is not a zero sum game. Kaposi currently teaches psychology at the University of East London, UK, and is a psychotherapist in training.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Kaposi sets out to examine, in detail, not only different interpretations of the Gaza conflict, as represented in broadsheet newspaper coverage of the war, but also to analyse the ways that these very interpretations make understanding - and conflict resolution - unattainable. I am sure that the book will come to be considered a significant contribution to the literature on the war (and on the Israel/Palestinian conflict more generally) and should retain this status for some years." - John E. Richardson, Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University, UK
