Ghada Karmi's storytelling eloquence is celebrated. Now the sheer power and sense of her analysis throws down a challenge to those who claim the 'problem' of Israel and Palestine cannot be solved. She shows it can. (John Pilger)
The demise of the two-state solution makes Ghada Karmi's work a compelling read. Her book is well-written and extraordinarily honest. Her bold vision of a single egalitarian state for Palestinians and Israelis is the only way to break the current log jam and bring an end to Apartheid Israel (Dr Nur Masalha, Reader in Religion and Politics, Director of the Centre for Religion and History and of the Holy Land Research Project, St Mary's University College, University of Surrey)

(Dr Nur Masalha, Reader in Religion and Politics, Director of the Centre for Religion and History and of the Holy Land Research Project, St Mary's University College, University of Surrey)
Ghada Karmi's direct and incisive prose is a welcome contribution to a field overburdened. ... The book introduces in the most convincing manner the merit of the one state solution as a settlement that would benefit all concerned: the Palestinians wherever they are, the Israelis and the Middle East as a whole. (Ilan Pappe, author of A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples)
Two rabbis visited Palestine in 1897 to examine its suitablity as a Jewish state and observed that the land was like a bride 'beautiful but married to another man'. These days the conflict ... has implications for the whole world. Karmi, one of our most renowned commentators on the Isreali-Palestinian conflict, has some startling ideas and conclusions in this fascinating book. (Hampstead and Highgate Express)

This most important book should be required reading for people in this country who have been subject to a diet of ignorance and bias by the BBC and a number of British newspapers, never more so than now.
Buyers should be aware that this book betrays its origin as an extended essay and is frequently repetitive and too long. It assumes some knowledge of the foundation of Israel and does not present a formal history of the country; for this I would choose the superior books of the historian Ilan Pappe.
I think this book is essential reading for anyone interested in Palestine and Israel. An excellent work.
