Once Upon A Country: A Palestinian Life



This autobiography by Palestinian intellectual Sari Nusseibeh, born in Damascus in 1948, educated in Philosphy at Oxford and Harvard, one-time faculty member of Hebrew University, appointed as administrator of Arab Jerusalem by Yasser Arafat,  and now professor and President of Al-Quds University, follows his earlier book, No Trumpets, No Drums:  A Two-State Settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.  Nusseibeh’s life reflects the modern history of Palestine from Al-Nakbah, through Al-Naqsah, to today’s struggle for the free and independent Palestine that was promised by the League of Nations and entrusted (alas!) to the British Mandate.   Buy here.
