"Palestine Inside Out" is not about suicide bombers. For ordinary Palestinians, everyday activities such as tending one's fields, visiting a relative or going to hospital require negotiating permits and passes, curfews and closures, 'sterile roads' and 'seam zones' - bureaucratic hurdles ultimately as deadly as outright military incursion.Not since Edward Said has there been such an articulate Arab voice on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In devastating detail, Saree Makdisi reveals how the 'peace process' institutionalised Palestinians' loss of control over their lives. Through eye-opening statistics and day-by-day reports, we learn how Palestinians have seen their hopes for freedom and statehood culminate in the creation of 'territories' comparable to open-air prisons. Makdisi describes how, despite this, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict can be brought to a peaceful and just resolution.
