This ambitious "primer on coexistence" is sponsored by the Abraham Fund, an organization dedicated to fostering Jewish-Arab coexistence in Israel, and compiled by one of its cofounders. A literary microcosm of the ethnic world in which it operates, the work is a series of essays reflecting different perspectives, priorities, and approaches from a wide range of recognized scholars and diplomats in the post-Cold War era. The contributors base their work on the premise that we will continue to live in a multicultural world and must find ways to live together with our differences. The book is well organized into six chapters, each with several essays covering both theoretical and practical topics such as the characteristics of interethnic conflict, tools for addressing interethnic conflict, "The Difficulty of Imagining Other Persons," and "Mediation as a World Role for the United States." Specific illustrations of coexistence throughout the text help clarify concepts. It is heartening that such a distinguished, diverse group of professionals is dedicated to coexistence work.
