Once Upon a Country: A Palestinian Life (New edition)

by Sari Nusseibeh with Anthony David
£15.99   paperback  Halban Publishers (2009)

Once Upon a Country: A Palestinian Life (New edition) by Sari Nusseibeh with Anthony David Sari Nusseibeh's autobiography is the story of his country.
 
Sari Nusseibeh's family history is inextricably interwoven with the city of Jerusalem, and his own life with the Palestinian nationalist struggle.
 
A dreamer by nature, he was always curious about what lay beyond the barbed wire of No Man's Land of divided East Jerusalem, and only too aware of the competing claims of the three great religions in his beloved Old City.
 
Reluctantly, he became involved in politics, managing to be termed "the smiling face of Palestinian terror" by some Israelis whilst also provoking Palestinian death threats - such were the angry responses to his independent thinking.
 
Through his deeply moving personal story, Nusseibeh reveals the terrible consequences of war, partition and terrorism. He also charts, from the inside, the life of the embattled Palestinian leadership under Arafat, with a penetrating analysis of the workings of the Palestinian Authority.
 
Sari Nusseibeh is a philosopher and the President of Al-Quds University in Jerusalem. In 2002 he co-founded The People’s Voice, an Israeli-Palestinian grass-roots organisation which advocates peace between Israel and Palestine. He was the PLO's chief representative in Jerusalem in 2001-2.
