Samenvatting

As debate continues about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and its root causes simmer, Palestinian refugees have become increasingly invisible. Voices from the Camps is about their humanity. This sociological study explores refugee camps in Jordan, where refugees share their plight and narrative of the Nakbeh (Catastrophe) of 1948. They also share their pain, conflicting identities, and aspirations. This book conveys the humanity of the poor, stateless, and invisible, by examining the impacts of displacement, dispossession, and refugee status upon refugees and their descendents as they struggle for survival both as individuals and as a community. This book does not propose solutions; rather, it highlights the human side of the Palestinian trauma and the urgent need for a just solution.

Recensie(s)

Marshood has the eye of a sociologist, the ear of a psychologist, and the assessment of a non-aligned diplomat. -- Anisa Mehdi, journalist; president/executive producer, Whetstone Productions A wonderfully fresh and realistic view of life in a Palestinian refugee camp. Though scholarly information on both the history and current situation of Palestinian refugees living in Jordan is documented, it is his approach of allowing refugees to speak for themselves that is so utterly compelling. ... [This work] should be read by all. -- Dr. C. Michael Botterweck, professor of sociology, Triton College One of its key insights: that oppression does not erase identity, but rather helps to strengthen it, needs to be heard among such audiences. ...Marshood gives voice to [refugee] voicelessness. -- Anthony Wanis-St. John PhD, assistant professor, international peace and conflict resolution, School of International Service, American University A powerful and poignant examination of the often invisible plight of Palestinian refugees.... offer[ing] a humane vision and hope in our bleak times! -- Cornel West, Union Theological Seminary
