This review is from: Disappearing Palestine: Israel's Experiments in Human Despair (Paperback)
This really is a well written book, I read it in two days, in all my spare moments.
If you want to understand how we got to where we are in Palestine/Israel, then please read this book. It deserves to have a wide readership. It quashes many of the accepted "facts" surrounding the history of the region, and sheds much needed light on the real underlying policy of the Israeli government. There are also many examples of what it actually means to be a Palestinian living under Israeli occupation.
After reading this, I understand more fully why a true two state solution is not going to happen, and why a one state solution is even less likely. This work really undermines so much of the pro Israel/zionist propaganda that is unfortunately most peoples only source of information. More power to your elbow Mr Cook !
