Voices from the West Bank


Voices from the West Bank
 
Chris Jones & Michael Lavalette

 Over 60% of the Palestinians living in the West Bank are under 20 years old. It is from their experiences and

stories that Voices from the West Bank explores this extraordinarily besieged society and the Palestinians’
enduring resistance to a ruthless occupation.

“Palestine is one of the most analyzed areas in the world, much of it in one dimensional headlines. Jones and
Lavalette decided they were going to live with the Palestinians, to discover and to understand the meanings of
oppression and occupation, and to learn about daily life and Palestinian dreams in the West Bank. It is more
than a book it is also like a diary that demands to be read, especially by Palestinians.”
Firas Helou, Abnaa El Balad, Nazareth
 
“This book shines a desperately needed torch on the emotion, plight, resistance and the daily life of
Palestinians. It cuts through history and legal jargon to bring you the pain, trauma and at the same time the
humour and hope among ordinary people in the West Bank. A book illuminating the human dimension of
Israeli occupation. This is a vital read for all those who care for human rights and dignity.”
Ismail Patel, Friends of Al-Aqsa
 
“This is an excellent book. It’s verywell written and illustrated,passionate and convincing in an
understated way. I learned a lot from it.”
