LeBor gives us a relatively unbiased (on his part) account Jaffa from 1923 through 2007. The narrative is mostly told through accounts and memories of six Jaffa resident families; three Jewish and three Arab (Muslim and Christian).
While the book presents the very different perspectives on events, it offers little analysis and makes no note of the contradictions between various memories and actual facts.
One of my favorite lines from LeBor: when speaking of a Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem under the Occupation - "Life there resembles Joseph Heller's book Catch-22, inspired by Franz Kafka and edited by Ariel Sharon."
