Editorial Reviews


"Ghada Karmi's storytelling eloquence is celebrated. Now the sheer power and sense of her analysis throws down a challenge to those who claim the 'problem' of Israel and Palestine cannot be solved. She shows it can." John Pilger"A compelling read. Her book is well-written and extraordinarily honest." Dr Nur Masalha, Reader in Religion and Politics, Director of the Centre for Religion and History and of the Holy Land Research Project, St Mary's University College, University of Surrey"The destructive impact Zionism had on the Arab world and on Palestine in particular is presented in this book with lucidity and clarity. ... A must read!" Ilan Pappe, author of A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two Peoples"This is an important book that demonstrates with relentless lucidity how terribly exhausted the diplomatic and political pursuit of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become." Martin Woollacott, The Guardian"This is a well-written book, and one of the best accounts of the Arab-Israeli narrative."Trevor Mostyn, Times Literary Supplement"This should be on Tony Blair's reading list"Betty Hunter, Palestine News"This is a brave and timely book which raises questions no-one involved in the Palestine solidarity movement can ignore."Anne Alexander, Socialist Review"Every few years a book on politics comes along which changes the way the world looks at one or other of its problems [Orwell, Chomsky, Said]. This latest book from Ghada Karmi takes its place with those books." Hugh O'Shaughnessy, Tribune

Married to Another Man Description

Two rabbis, visiting Palestine in 1897,observed that the land was like a bride,"beautiful,but married to another man". By which they meant that, if a place was to be found for Israel in Palestein,where would the people of Palestine go? This is a dilemma that Israel has never been able to resolve. No conflict today is more dangerous than that between Israel and the Palestinians. The implications it has for regional and global security cannot be overstated. The peace process as we know it is dead and no solution is in sight. Nor, as this book argues, will that change until everyone involved in finding a solution accepts the real causes of conflict, and its consequences on the ground. Leading writer Ghada Karmi explains in fascinating detail the difficulties Israel's existence created for the Arab world and why the search for a solution has been so elusive. Ultimately,she argues that the conflict will end only once the needs of both Arabs and Israelis are accommodated equally. Her startling conclusions overturn conventional thinking-but they are hard to refute.
