en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – 12 Feb 2015
Award-winning author Raja Shehadeh explores the politics of language and the language of politics in the Israeli Palestine conflict, reflecting on the walls that they create - legal and cultural - that confine today's Palestinians just like the physical borders, checkpoints and the so called 'Separation Barrier'.The peace process has been ground to a halt by twists of language and linguistic chicanery that has degraded the word 'peace' itself. No one even knows what the word might mean now for the Middle East. So to give one example of many, Israel argued that the omission of the word 'the' in one of the UN Security Council's resolutions meant that it was not mandated to withdraw from all of the territories occupied in 1967.The Language of War, The Language of Peace is another important book from Raja Shehadeh on the world's greatest political fault line.

Recenzii

Shehadeh writes beautifully, his language infused with a lyrical, melancholic sense of loss
Few Palestinians have opened their minds and hearts with such frankness
Shehadeh writes with great clarity and simplicity, but no bitterness about the unhappy history of his family and country
