Overview

Gorkin, a Jewish-American psychologist, and Othman, a Palestinian special education teacher, have assembled interviews with three mother-daughter pairs. One pair comes from East Jerusalem, another from a refugee camp in the West Bank, and the third from an Arab village within Israel. In the telling of their personal stories, the women reveal a great deal about the turbulent history of the Palestinian-Israeli relationship. Their stories make it clear that changes that have occurred in the lives of Palestinian women, in the areas of education, work, and personal freedom, have not come easily. The authors live and work in the Jerusalem area. The volume includes a glossary; it lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
