This is an important book; a vital contribution to the scholarship on this issue. The empirical evidence that Dunsky has so diligently provided for her arguments constitutes her book's greatest strength. -- Karim H. Karim, Director, School of Journalism and Communication, Carleton University, Canada Written by a journalist and scholar who has reported from the region, this book is a perceptive, careful, and factual assessment of why the American mainstream media do such an exceedingly poor job of conveying the realities of the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, instead perpetuating stereotypes and echoing the conceits of policymakers in Washington. -- Rashid Khalidi, Edward W. Said Professor of Arab Studies, Middle East Institute, Columbia University Pens and Swords doesn't just decry systematic distortion but explains why it happens again and again. Marda Dunsky makes use of theory to illuminate rather than obscure, bringing academic rigor to a topic so politicized that many avoid it out of fear. Thanks to Dunsky for this brave and timely book. -- Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin
