The second Palestinian intifada; a chronicle of a people's struggle.


The second Palestinian intifada; a chronicle of a people's struggle.

Baroud, Ramzy.

Pluto Press


216 pages




Feeling that the Palestinian perspective has been largely neglected in discussions of the Second Intifada (or Al Aqsa Intifada) in the Palestinian Occupied Territories, Baroud (editor-in-chief, Palestine Chronicle) offers a year-by-year account from 2000 to 2005. In addition to describing the many depredations of Israeli occupation forces, he also discusses the growing international solidarity groups and actions in support of the Palestinians, the problem of corruption in the Palestinian Authority and its manipulation by Israel and the United States, the illegality of the so-called Separation Wall, and the impact of the death of Yasser Arafat. Additionally, Baroud provides a relatively detailed timeline of events in an appendix. Distributed in the US by the U. of Michigan Press.
