Arab and Jew
Arab stereotype portrays the Jew as a brutal. violent coward. The Jewish stereotype portrays the Arab as a primitive creature of animal vengeance and cruel desires. In this monumental Pulitzer Prize-winning work. revised in 2002. David Shipler delves into the origins of these prejudices that have been intensified by war. terrorism. and nationalism. Shipler examines the process of indoctrination that begins in schools. the far-ranging effects of socioeconomic differences. and the historical conflicts between Islam and Judaism. And he writes of the people: the Arab woman in love with a Jew; the retired Israeli military officer; the Palestinian guerrilla; the handsome actor whose father is Arab and mother is Jewish. Their stories reflect not only the reality of wounded spirits. but also a glimmer of hope for eventual coexistence in the Promised Land.

Today. Grover Cleveland is chiefly known as the only president to have been elected to two nonconsecutive terms. But in his day. Cleveland was a renowned reformer: an enemy of political machines who joined forces with Theodore Roosevelt to fight powerful party bosses. a moralist who vetoed bills he considered blatant raids on the Treasury. and a vigorous defender of the Monroe Doctrine who resisted American imperialism. Cleveland’s career in office was plagued by scandal and a gossip-mongering press. During his first presidential bid. he was persecuted for fathering a child out of wedlock. a charge to which Cleveland readily admitted. At the age of forty-nine. he married his twenty-one-year-old ward. and after the nation’s initial surprise. she became the most popular first lady of her day. On his deathbed. Cleveland would sum up his career simply: „I have tried so hard to do right.” In graceful and enduring prose. H. Paul Jeffers gives us the first full look at a president whose moral timber and courageous administrations have more to say to today’s politicians than perhaps that of any other leader in American history.
