Reviews

"The Plight of the Palestinians turned out to be an essential read, and a full and authoritative discourse. It offers a grim and detailed story of suffering and the "slow motion genocide", which is important in order to appreciate the harshness of the Palestinian experience. The Plight of the Palestinians: A Long History of Destruction spreads the seeds of understanding, which is so essential to any meaningful and lasting change." - The Jordan Times

"In his collection of thirty-two articles by almost as many authors . . .William Cook provides a devastating assessment of Zionist violence against Palestinians. Relentlessly told are one atrocity after another, one act of deception after another, one broken treaty after another, one surprise attack after another, one policy reversal after another - all of which are described with both effective immediacy and an adequate sense of historic context." - Atlantic Free Press
