Ali Abunimah's new book, The Battle for Justice in Palestine, begins "The Palestinians are winning."

"The best book on Palestine in the last decade...the most comprehensive treatment of Palestinian suffering under Israeli control and offers the only possible way to end it...a 'must read' for anyone seeking to understand the current situation of the Palestinians and Israel.
-- Professor Joseph Massad, Columbia University

[This book focuses] "on the many civil society and campus initiatives around the world that are bravely ushering in a new era of global grass-roots organizing for justice...The Battle for Justice in Palestine will inspire readers that Palestinian self-determination is not only possible but absolutely necessary."
-- Moustafa Bayoumi, author of How Does It Feel To Be A Problem?? Being Young and Arab in America

ALI ABUNIMAH directs The Electronic Intifada and wrote One Counry: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli Palestinian Impasse. A leader in the movement for justice in Palestine for the past 20 years, in 2013 he received the Lannan Cultural Freedom Fellowship.
