IPS NEW BOOK PRE-SALE

In the Land of My Birth recounts the coming of age of a blind Palestinian boy of modest milieu during the turbulent years leading up to the fall of Palestine in 1948. Above all, it is the boy’s life—his struggles to make his way in the sighted world, his upbringing, schooling, friendships, and adventures.

Special Focus: Hamas at Crossroads

While speculation about the fate of the movement and its role in Palestinian politics has reached unprecedented levels, it remains unclear how exactly will Hamas address the brewing crises at its doorstep. Whether the goal is to retain its political power or a return to its insulated resistance mode, the nature of the road ahead depends on how Hamas defines itself in light of largely different geopolitical realities from those that defined its inception in the late 1980s.
