A moving account of the plight of the Palestinians by one of them: a physician struggling to alleviate his people's lot. -- Desmond M. Tutu, Archbishop Emeritus
Hatim Kanaaneh sheds a unique light on the lives of the over one million Palestinians who hold Israeli citizenship in a beautifully readable and engrossing memoir of his years as a village doctor in the Galilee. His account of the rank racial discrimination, difficult social circumstances and pervasive poverty of most Palestinians in the Jewish state is leavened by Kanaaneh's humour and his eye for striking detail. This is a truly touching book that is hard to put down. -- Rashid Khalidi
