The ‘fascinating book’, which has received raving reviews from iconic intellectuals around the world, provides a rare view of the future of Palestine, as articulated by nearly 30 engaged Palestinian scholars from Palestine and across the shatat, the Diaspora.

“At a time when the world desperately needs hope and guidance toward habitable futures, these moving visions of a decolonized, democratic and free Palestine will resonate wherever collective yearnings for freedom have survived,” iconic American activist, intellectual and Professor Angela Davis wrote, adding, “Palestinian intellectuals, activists and artists are a beacon, both for the future of Palestine and the destiny of our globe.”

This view was shared by renowned Australian journalist John Pilger who described the book as an “outstanding anthology”, with an “eloquent logic”, which demonstrates that “Palestine will be free, like a seed beneath the snow”.

For his part, South African author, politician and anti-apartheid activist Ronnie Kasrils said that this book is “a death knell to Zionist fantasy and imperialist domination” as “every page breathes the scent of freedom”.

British filmmaker Ken Loach and Indian historian Vijay Prashad agreed, along with world-famous English musician and activist, Roger Waters, who described Pappe-Baroud’s volume as ‘fascinating’.

Professor and author, Jeremy Salt, stated that these “essays send a clear message to the racist apartheid occupiers of Palestine”.

Published by Clarity Press, the book promises to offer a way forward in nearly thirty different fields of popular resistance, including archeology, history, culture, media, sports, language, politics and diplomacy.

Contributors to the book include Khalida Jarrar, who discusses the issue of resistance in Israeli prisons, Father Manuel Musallam, who addresses the Christian vision for liberation and Farah Nabulsi, who writes on liberation through cinema.

Other contributors include *Haneen Zoabi *Sami A. Al-Arian *Ghada Karmi *Mazin Qumsiyeh  *Randa Abdel Fattah *Hasan Abu Nimah *Samah Sabawi *Hamdan Taha
