Violence and Understanding in Gaza is the first comprehensive investigation of the British broadsheets' coverage of the Gaza War. Written in accessible language and engaging style, it critiques the newspapers' output, which it is argued replicates the black and white logic of war instead of focusing on negotiations and peace. In the familiar atmosphere of hue and cry, Violence and Understanding in Gaza encourages its readers to think for themselves when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As the first comprehensive investigation of the British broadsheets' coverage of the armed conflict between the State of Israel and Hamas, Kaposi critiques the newspapers' output, arguing that they without exception merely replicate the black and white logic of war. He contends that the newspapers defeat their own aims about a two-state solution based on compromise. For that to happen, the British media must in future cease to write about the conflict as if it were a mythical contest between Good and Evil. Instead of asking who is innocent and who should be blamed, it should start to treat the conflict as a story of mutually painful but very real human relations. Any meaningful political-moral criticism can only start from that position
Kaposi sets out to examine, in detail, not only different interpretations of the Gaza conflict, as represented in broadsheet newspaper coverage of the war, but also to analyse the ways that these very interpretations make understanding - and conflict resolution - unattainable. I am sure that the book will come to be considered a significant contribution to the literature on the war (and on the Israel/Palestinian conflict more generally) and should retain this status for some years. - John E. Richardson, Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University, UK
David Kaposi was born in a football stadium in Budapest. It is from that time that his interest in the human affairs dates. Having written about the work of novelist Imre Kertesz and the exchange between philosopher Hannah Arendt and historian Gershom Scholem, he has also come to appreciate that life is not a zero sum game. Kaposi currently teaches psychology at the University of East London, UK, and is a psychotherapist in training
