Abstract
 
Description
This is a personal account of the struggle of Hanan Ashrawi who, by adhering to a moderate political stance, worked for the co-operation and coexistence of Arabs and Jews in Palestine. A Christian woman, living in a predominantly male, moslem community, she affords a glimpse into the truth behind the PLO and tells how she helped to bring the Israeli and Palestinian women's movement together. When the Intifada erupted in Palestine in 1987, Hanan Ashrawi found her way to the front lines of the revolution, becoming a crucial link between the established but exiled leadership of the PLO and the outside world. Later, in 1993, she sat waiting on the White House lawn for the signing of an agreement, and a final handshake, between the Palestinians and the Israelis. Her story is one of an oppressed people, of the hierarchy of the PLO, and of Middle Eastern diplomacy. - from Amzon
