Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is truly a guidebook, a resource for readers seeking information about the cultural, social, and geographic character of Palestine, a region with a long history but no current political existence. Shahin, a journalist, author, and frequent contributor to special news programs for ABC News, opens with a rich section on Palestinian life, surveying Palestinian history, landscape, and traditional and contemporary arts and crafts. Ten pages are devoted to examining the present political frustrations among Palestinians. Shahin goes on to provide detailed descriptions of every region-its people, towns, settings, and historic sites-while photographer Azar (Palestine: A Photographic Journey) contributes a multitude of attractive and colorful photographs depicting a wide range of residents and places. There is also a useful appendix of travel information, which lists tourism and cultural organizations, research centers, and contacts for hotels, restaurants, and travel facilities in many towns. Valuable for public and college libraries whose patrons may want to plan a visit to the region or may simply want to learn about daily life in Palestine free of the intense political perspective pervasive in the press and television coverage of the region.-Elizabeth R. Hayford, Associated Colls. of the Midwest, Chicago Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    A Palestinian Point of View

    Close to 500 pages of thick, high quality glossy paper makes this a thick, heavy book. It is divided into 4 parts, which covers the country geographically. The 33 chapters are short overviews of each topic and the excellent photography gives the book life. It contains a history, woven into current events from a Palestinian point of view.
