THE PALESTINE PROBLEM was going to press when the Holy Day War broke out on October 6 1973 on the Jewish Day of Atonement and during the Moslem Feast of Ramadan. The war - bloodier than that of 1948, 1956 or 1967 - was the outcome of over six years of crises hallmarked by the inability of those involved to negotiate a peace settlement. In a quest to research the human side of the conflict, the author traveled Israel, the Palestinian territories, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon, seeking interviews with people on all sides, in government, outlawed political movements, the media, universities, refugee camps, homes in exile, and in trenches during civil war.
