Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly original book collects surprisingly candid stories as experienced by three Palestinian mothers and their daughters, stories that are inextricably interwoven with memories of the intifada and the wars of 1948 and 1967. Beautifully told and sensitively edited by Michael Gorkin and Rafiqa Othman, the linked stories in this collection bear witness to the everyday life of Palestinian women under Israeli occupation and the profound changes that have occurred in their political and personal lives, ultimately offering the reader a staggering view of womens changing roles in a Muslim society. A valuable contribution to the literature on women, the Arab world, and the Palestine-Israel conflict. . . . The complexity of the women's lives and stories and the ways in which they portray themselves in the book make this work of value to anthropologists, as well as to scholars in womens studies, oral history, Middle East studies, and sociology.Journal of Palestine Studies

Book News Annotation:

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.
