Description

This work covers over two decades of turmoil and change in the Middle East, steered via the history-soaked landscape of Palestine. Raja Shehadeh, celebrated human rights campaigner and lawyer, navigates recent Palestinian history, from Ayn Kenya to the Shukba Caves, the Ramallah hills and the Dead Sea. Literally entwined within the chinks and fissures of these walks is a mine of conflict and failures, which Shehadeh chronicles with vigour and poignancy.show more

Review quote

"'This harrowing book is an impassioned cry from the soul for decency.' What's On In London 'Bitter, honest and shocking, we see this most open wound of the Middle East in a way that makes us question what it means to be human.' Good Book Guide 'A gifted raconteur of anecdotes that are parable-like in their compactness, richness, and in being eminently re-tellable, and as subtle and introspective a narrator and observer of himself and all in his midst as one could possibly hope for.' Journal of Palestine Studies"show more
