Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here, Christison brilliantly tests readers' prejudices and preconceptions regarding Palestinians, including Palestinian Americans, and their attitudes toward Israel. She shatters the common assumptions that Palestinians harbor an intrinsic hatred of Jews, that Palestinians want exclusive ownership of the land in the Middle East, that Palestinians are all alike, or even that Palestinians don't want to be Israelis. She brings to the front the rarely heard voices of intellectuals, businesspeople, and Palestinian Americans, who are largely underrepresented in the Palestinian conversation concerning Israel. Christison, a former CIA political analyst and author of Perceptions of Palestine: Their Influence on U.S. Middle East Policy, successfully shows that Palestinians are not all of one kind. She doesn't claim to provide an objective, scientific, or even representative voice but simply one that must be heard. Written in simple terminology for a wide audience, this book makes a great addition to public and academic libraries alike. Ethan Pullman, Univ. of Pittsburgh Lib. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Although this work was written in 1992 (but not published), former CIA analyst Christison believes her account of Palestinian attitudes towards Israel and the possibilities of statehood remains as relevant as ever. The principal basis of the book is a series of interviews conducted with 124 Palestinians residing in the United States. The stories of the Palestinians are told in thematic chapters related to the 1948 and 1967 dispossessions of Palestinian lands, the experience of being an American immigrant, reactions to Zionist ideology, reflections on the two-state solution, and views of the Intifada.

    'Wound' reveals truths of Palestine's angst

    Kathleen Christison, a former CIA analyst, appears to be an excellent and incisive reporter on attitudes in and about the Middle East, partiuclarly Israel/Palestine. The Wound of Dispossession, in which she interviews some 120 Palestinians living in the U.S., is an intelligent, honest and revealing book. The great variety of Palestinian attitudes will surprise you. But all the people she interviewed share the deep sense of having been displaced from their natural homeland, and profoundly abused by Israeli overlords. I think this book should be must reading for every American who wants to understand the real roots of the calamity we now see unfolding in the Holy Land. Incidentally, this book is not out of stock, but is readily available from its publisher right now.
