Throughout the world Palestinians have often been viewed through narrow prisms of "terrorists" or "victims." This comprehensive collection of oral histories brings to life generations of Palestinians, those living in the occupied territories as well as those in the far-flung exile of the Palestinian diapora. The authors traveled throughout Israel and the occupied territories to find the multi-generational families living in towns, villages and refugee camps whose voices resonate in Homeland. These are the stories of loss, of exile, of remembering.
Staughton Lynd is a noted U.S. labor historian and author. Sam Bahour is the national coordinator of Palestinian-American Youth. Alice Lynd is the editor of We Won't Go: Personal Accounts of War Objectors.
