Abstract

The autobiography of Sheikh 'Abd al Hamid al-Sa'ih is intertwined with the history of Palestine and the story of its struggle across the generations. The author has been a major influence on political decisions and has been a decision-maker in his own right. Covering a period of nearly 75 years, these memoirs take the reader from the author’s birth to his decision to resign from the presidency of the Palestine National Council.
