This book is a poorly written compilation of information gathered from numerous sources. By "poorly written" I simply mean the narrative from the author's own voice is missing beyond the introduction and the quotation after quotation, citation after citation, made this a very dry, painful, difficult to finish read for me. The book assumes a good familiarity and understanding of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict of it's reader (which I admittedly have not). The book is blatantly pro-Palestinian (anti-Israeli), which is fine, but I think that makes it more of a "preaching to the choir" kind of book. As I said, I'm not educated enough regarding the Israeli-Palestinian reality and I'm sure I didn't gain as much insight or food-for-thought as I would have reading a less propaganda-y book.
