  • About the Edition

    Bombed and cut-off from normal contact with rest of the world, life in Gaza is beset with structural, medical and mental health problems, yet it is also bursting with political engagement and underwritten by an intense enjoyment of family life. In this title, the author develops an acute eye for the way in which isolation has shaped this society.
