A Psychoanalytic View of the Arab-Israeli Conflict
University of Wisconsin Press, 9780299202507, 280pp.
Publication Date: December 8, 2004
Falk suggests that a way to understand and explain such irrational matters is to examine the unconscious aspects of the conflict. He examines large-group psychology, nationalism, group narcissism, psychogeography, the Arab and Israeli minds, and suicidal terrorism, and he offers psychobiographical studies of Ariel Sharon and Yasser Arafat, two key players in this tragic conflict today.
