Stone Men - The Palestinians Who Built Israel

Author(s): Andrew Ross


Palestinian "stone men," using some of the best limestone in the world and drawing on generations of artisanal knowledge, have built almost every state in the Middle East except one of their own. Andrew Ross's gracefully written story of this fascinating ancient craft shows how the stones and labor of historic Palestine have been used to build Israel-in the process, constructing "facts on the ground"-even while the industry is central to the Palestinians' resistance to the Occupation. The hands that built Israel's houses, schools, offices, and even its walls have been Palestinian. This book asks how this record of labor and achievement should be recognized. Book jacket.
