A collaboration between an Israeli psychologist and a Palestinian school teacher.

This highly original book recounts the surprisingly candid stories of three Palestinian mothers and their daughters. Beautifully told and sensitively edited, these linked narratives bear witness to their experiences of Israeli occupation, their memories of the wars of 1948 and 1967, and the profound changes that have occurred in their political and personal lives.

"The complexity of the women's lives and stories and the ways in which they portray themselves in the book make this work of value to anthropologists, as well as to scholars in women's studies, oral history, Middle East studies, and sociology."
-Journal of Palestine Studies

Review:

Some experiences are so basic to women that we expect similarities. But the six Palestinian mothers and daughters who talk of their lives here may throw many Western reference points askew. One raised children in a refugee camp after her village was destroyed and paid dearly for the violent politics this fostered in them. All are marked by a society that preaches female inferiority and work not softened by modern conveniences. Among the older women, the rigors of bearing child after child are unfamiliar to most of us--and even to their daughters, whose lives reflect seesawing social changes in the conflict-ridden Middle East. These very differences, though, are what makes their stories fascinating.

About the Author:

Michael Gorkin is a clinical psychologist and author of Days of Honey, Days of Onion: The Story of a Palestinian Family (California, 1991). Rafiqa Othman is a teacher and supervisor at the David Yellin Teacher's College in Jerusalem.
