If you want to know the basics of the Palestine/Israel conflict, this graphic novel is great. It tells the history of the invasion and the 2 intifadas that followed thereafter. It's worth a read. Sacco enters Palestine as a Westerner, a journalist, to get to grips with the situation in Palestine towards the end of the first intifada- it's his account of it. His view of the Palestine/Israel conflict is not that of the mainstream western media, it's the reality of the situation. Although the text can still be considered somewhat orientalist, it really allows you to get a hold of Palestinian history. I followed up reading this with some critical theory on Palestine, a text written by Said and Hitchens as well as other critics. It's called 'Blaming the Victims' and it's a great follow-up read. I would recommend this text to those who don't have much knowledge of this conflict.

I always liked graphic novels and comics. This comic from joe Sacco is great to get to know what really happen in Palestine. I really recommend to read his comics, and especially this one "Palestine". I also recommend to join the prime account to get the staff in one day.

A bit dated now having been written some time ago.

But fantastic! Really shows how good a graphic novel can be.

Interesting chronicle of Palestine's recent past. The author doesn't hesitate to denounce his own preconceptions and prejudice, confronting his own ordinary concerns, frustrations and fears as a journalist with the compellingly vital concerns, frustrations and fears of ordinary Palestinians.

A very powerful book and made all the more interesting by the graphic novel format it employs.
