recommended reading for anyone curious about the geography of israel and palestine, but in my opinion the writing was better when it first appeared on opendemocracy.org, where it is still available for free. the book winds up feeling more theoretical and pendantic and academic than the short installments found on opendemocracy, each feeling pragmatic and necessary and grounded in ethics in its own right, some of the most compelling architectural commentary i have read
