Roots Run Deep

Life In Occupied Palestine

BY HAMDE ABU RAHMA
This book consists of 35 photographs, each with a long explanatory note, that highlight the stories of the Palestinian life and struggle under the occupation of the West Bank. From the old Bedouin woman threatened with the destruction of her home, to the contrast of vast illegal settlements to the poor Palestinian villages they tower over, images of the wall, Israeli soldiers spraying foul smelling "skunk" water on peaceful demonstrators , burned olive trees, Checkpoints and confrontaions. Despite it all the photographer can still see hopes of peace with justice. Be warned the book has a weak binding.

The Battles Of Three Women At Home And At War

BY HELEN THORPE
Quaker Helen Thorpe follows the lives of 3 women over 12 years on their paths to the military, overseas to combat, and back home...and then overseas again for two of them. These women, who are quite different in every way, become friends, and we watch their interaction and also what happens when they are separated. We see their families, their lovers, their spouses, their children. We see them work hard, deal with the attentions of men, and struggle to stay connected to their families. We see some of them drink too much, have affairs, and react to the deaths of fellow soldiers. And we see what happens to one of them when the truck she is driving hits an explosive in the road.

Making Peace Cultures Happen

BY ELISE BOULDING AND DAISAKU IKEDA
Elise Boulding, an American Quaker, and Daisaku Ikeda, a Japanese Buddhist, began their journeys in peace building from vastly different locales and traditions. However, as these fifteen intimate conversations reveal, shared wisdom grows from an unwavering commitment to a better world. Throughout these dialogues, the authors explore the dynamic qualities of peace cultures. Translated from a 2006 Japanese version, this book gives no information about the circumstances under which these dialogues occurred or how they were recorded.
