Going Home: A Walk Through Fifty Years of Occupation (Hardcover)

Regular price $24.99

by Raja Shehadeh


In Going Home, Raja Shehadeh, the Orwell Prize-winning author of Palestinian Walks, takes us on a series of journeys around his hometown of Ramallah. Set in a single day--the day that happens to be the fiftieth anniversary of Israel's occupation of the West Bank--the book is a powerful and moving record and chronicle of the changing face of his city.
Here is a city whose green spaces--gardens and hills crowned with olive trees-- have been replaced by tower blocks and concrete lots; where the Israeli occupation has further entrenched itself in every aspect of movement, from the roads that can and cannot be used to the bureaucratic barriers that prevent people leaving the West Bank. Here also is a city that is culturally shifting, where Islam is taking a more prominent role in people's everyday and political lives and in the geography of the city.
