"Myre and Griffin have written a stunning piece of nonfiction about the tortured and heartbreaking stalemate in the Middle East. This is a brilliant book - superbly written and devastatingly insightful. The fact that they raised two little girls while reporting this story makes every explosion, every riot, every checkpoint especially upsetting. I don't know how they did it."
-- Sebastian Junger, author of "War" and "The Perfect Storm"
"Myre and Griffin have written an extraordinary story -- personal yet hard-hitting -- that takes you inside the world of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the hopes and fears that drive it. There are no punches pulled here. A must read for anyone who prefers Middle East reality over fantasy.
-- Aaron David Miller, former U.S. peace negotiator and author of "The Much Too Promised Land."
"This Burning Land" is what you get when you unleash two excellent reporters on one of the wold's most compelling stories. With eloquence, insight, and a real sense of urgency, Greg Myre and Jennifer Griffin bring to life places like Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip during a time of siege and chaos. Even if you disagree with their conclusions, you will be swept up in their story of tragedy and hope.
-- Jeffrey Goldberg, Atlantic correspondent and author of "Prisoners: A Muslim and a Jew Across the Middle East Divide."
