Shehadeh releases another slice of shattered Middle Eastern life.


Palestinian human rights lawyer Raja Shehadeh has published his second book, entitled 'When the Bulbul Stopped Singing'.

A founder of Arab organisation for human rights Al-Haq, Shehadeh has been witness to the harsh reality of life in the Palestinian city of Ramallah, where he and his family were forceably resettled.

Shehadeh's latest book is based on his diary through a month of Israeli occupation last year, as he watched the region tear itself apart on television and outside his window, reported the New Zealand Herald.

'When the Bulbul Stopped Singing' is published in New Zealand by Profile Books and priced at NZD24.95.
