Yellow Wind was poignant and provocative in 1988; it looks downright prophetic now. This is not a work of balanced reporting. Mr. Grossman was writing for Israelis, and he didn't waste time telling them what they already knew about Arab aggression and terrorism. His goal was to make readers confront hard questions about the occupation: 'Why are we there?' 'Who is pushing us farther into this mess?' 'What are we doing to the Palestinians?' 'What are we doing to ourselves?' 'How will this end?' The explicit purpose of Yellow Wind was to provoke critical thought and argument among open minds. In this purpose it succeeds as well today as when it was first published. The problem is that there may be too few open minds left for the argument to matter. Yellow Wind should not be anybody's first book on the occupation, because it is unabashedly one-sided. I would, however, include it on the 'short list' of Middle East reading, and urge everyone to invest the few hours required to read it.
