Tending one's fields, visiting a relative, going to the hospital: for ordinary Palestinians, such activities require negotiating permits and passes, curfews and closures, sterile roads and seam zones bureaucratic hurdles ultimately as deadly as outright military incursion. In Palestine Inside Out, Saree Makdisi draws on eye-opening statistics, academic histories, UN reports, and contemporary journalism to reveal how the peace process institutionalized Palestinians loss of control over their inner and outer lives and argues powerfully and convincingly for a one-state solution.
