Product Description

Review

Praise for Palestinian Walks:

'Few Palestinians have opened their minds and their hearts with such frankness

(The New York Times)

Shehadeh writes beautifully, his language infused with a lyrical, melancholic sense of loss. An important record of a land marked by conflict that is changing every day (Sunday Telegraph)

Shehadeh is always engaging ... delivering what many activists neglect to mention: the odd, slightly absurd details that really touch people; things that appear off camera, away from news reports (Independent on Sunday)

Towards any proper understanding of history there are many small paths. I strongly suggest you walk with him (John Berger)

Palestinian Walks is a stoic account of a particular place, but one which has universal resonance. The judges felt it made landscape into the essence of politics, and political writing into an art (John Seaton, chair of the Orwell Prize committee, 2008)

Shehadeh describes howthe destruction of a beloved landscape mirrors the damage to Palestinian identity ... lyrical nature-writing with understated political passion (Guardian)

Readers would do well to reckon with the painful particulars of Shehadeh's account, which is at once gentle and angry, resolute and realistic (Nation)

This is a beautiful book and a sad one (Anthony Lewis)

Palestinian Walks provides a rare historical insight into the tragic changes taking place in Palestine (Jimmy Carter)

Book Description

Life in Palestine today - what it is really like - day to day, now shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2013

How the US and Israeli Occupation of Palestine and the way its apartheid regime effects the daily life of the indigenous population. Palestine now has the ring of the Southern States of America pre "Civil Rights" revolution.
This Mid East colony is just a "work in progress" and is totally dependent on US support. As a project is looks doomed.

By Barbarapicturepainter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If Americans knew what life is like for the beleagured Palestinian people under Israeli rule most would see that we are on the wrong side of history in condoning Israel's brutal occupation.
