Staff Reviews

I first read this when it came out in 2016 and returned to it recently. This was the first book that really helped me understand Palestine, and it is just as relevant today as it was when it was released. Who else but one of the greatest freedom fighters of our time shall we turn to in order to understand the incomprehensible violence against the Palestinian people? Davis reminds us that all fights for liberation are connected. She makes those connections visible and encourages us to think both globally and collectively as we imagine, build, and work towards the world we want to live in.
