Before Their Diaspora Book Description

Before Their Diaspora is a visual journey into life in Palestine before its partition in 1948. Every important aspect of modern Palestinian history comes to life in the nearly 500 photographs carefully selected from thousands uncovered in private and public collections throughout the world. Descriptive, analytic texts introduce each of the five historical periods into which the book is divided, and detailed chronologies complete the overviews.
