Summary
"On October 3, 1985, Leon Klinghoffer, a disabled Jewish New Yorker, and his wife boarded the Achille Lauro to celebrate their 36th wedding anniversary with a Mediterranean cruise. Four days later, four Palestinian fedayeen hijacked the Italian luxury liner and took the passengers and crew hostage. Leon Klinghoffer was shot in the head, his body and wheelchair thrown overboard. His murder became a flashpoint in the ... struggle between Israelis and Arabs and gave Americans a ... preview of what it means when terrorism hits home. In this ... book, drawing on multiple perspectives, Julie Salamon dispels the mythology that has grown around that shattering moment"--Publisher marketing
