Gaza : Preparing for Dawn

Macintyre, Donald More by this author...£10.99

A highly respected voice reveals the truth behind the myths in the Middle East's crucible of conflict.

Uniquely imprisoned, most Palestinians in Gaza cannot travel beyond the confines of the Strip, and in times of war escape is impossible. They live under siege - economic and armed - and yet so many remain courageous, outspoken and steadfast. Donald Macintyre lays bare Gaza's human tragedy and reveals how it became a crucible of conflict and a byword for suffering.

He identifies the repeated failings - including those of the international community - that have seen countless opportunities for peace pass by. Yet, against all odds, hope for a better future lingers. Gaza was once a flourishing coastal civilization open to the world.

Could it be so again?
