"This highly original work is an important contribution to Palestine literature, especially in the way that personal narrative interacts with and enriches collective-national and public memory."
--Nur Masalha, author of "Expulsion of the Palestinians: The Concept of "Transfer" in Zionist Political Thought"


"In this wonderful collection, one can hear the Palestinians speaking for themselves and not through others who may distort or dim their messages. Very few collections have brought home to us so vividly and authentically what it means to be a Palestinian today."
--Ilan Pappe, author of "The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty"


"Neslen powerfully gives voice to Palestinians, humanizes them, and reveals the complexities of Palestinian society."
--Sara Roy, author of "Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza "

From the Publisher:
Who are the Palestinians? In this compelling book of interviews, Arthur Neslen reaches beyond journalistic cliches to let a wide variety of Palestinians answer the question for themselves. Beginning in the present with Bisan and Abud, two traumatized children from Jenin's refugee camp, the book's narrative arcs backwards through the generations to come full circle with two elderly refugees from villages that the children were named after. Along the way, Nelsen recounts a history of land, resistance, exile, and trauma that begins to explain Abud's wish to become a martyr and Bisan's dream of a Palestine empty of Jews. Senior Fatah and Hamas figures relate key events of the Palestinian experience--the Second Intifada, Oslo Process, First Intifada, Thawra, 1967 War, the Naqba, and the Great Arab Revolt of 1936--in their own words. The extraordinary voices of women, children, farmers, fighters, drug dealers, policeman, doctors, and others, spanning the political divide from the Salafi Jihadists to Israeli soldiers, brings the Palestinian story to life even as their worlds sow seeds of hope in the scorched Palestinian Earth.
