This book provides a sharp analysis of the struggle for Palestine - from the division of the Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the founding of Israel and its role as a watchdog for U.S. interests, to present-day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution. The narrative is firmly rooted in the politics of Palestinian liberation. Here is a necessary contribution to the heroic efforts of the Palestinian people to achieve justice in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
Join us for a presentation and discussion that will interest both long-term Palestinian rights activists and those who are new to understanding the issue.
Richard Becker is a writer and commentator on Middle East affairs. He has visited the Middle East on numerous occasions.
Becker has contributed to books and videos on Iraq and Middle East affairs, and been a featured speaker across the country and around the world.
He is a regular contributor to Liberation newspaper and PSLweb.org.
"Becker gives us the most focused and penetrating analysis we have of the real dynamics in the continuing persecution of the Palestinian people." - Ramsey Clark, former U.S. attorney general.
