[ePalestine] New Book: Letters from Palestine (by Kenneth Ring and Ghassan Abdullah)

Dear friends,

Please allow me to draw your attention to a new book that is now in the marketplace:

Letters from Palestine: Palestinians Speak Out about Their Lives, Their Country, and the Power of Nonviolence
by Kenneth Ring and Ghassan Abdullah
Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Wheatmark (July 15, 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1604944161
ISBN-13: 978-1604944167

Having been a co-editor to a volume of oral histories on Palestine and Palestinians after the first Gulf War, I feel this book is a natural extension which brings the reality of every day Palestinians to the reader.

I personally know several of the people whose accounts are offered. The book is an easy read and full of normal Palestinian life, which is not normal by any stretch of the imagination.

I strongly encourage you to buy and donate a copy to your public local library. Also, if you are a Palestinian diaspora parent raising your kids outside of Palestine, this book is a must read for you, and them.

History, from the people, by the people, and for the people,
