Join us to hear Ramzy Baroud speak about his new book The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story from Pluto Press.
About the Speaker:
Ramzy Baroud is a journalist, media consultant, author and editor of the Palestine Chronicle. He is a Non-Resident Scholar at the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies, University of California Santa Barbara. He is the author of “My Father Was a Freedom Fighter: Gaza’s Untold Story (Pluto, 2009), among other books. He has a Ph.D. in Palestine Studies from the University of Exeter.
About the Book:
A history of modern Palestine, told through the stories of the people who have survived the conflict.
Spanning decades and encompassing war, mass exodus, epic migrations and the search for individual and collective identity, The Last Earth tells the story of modern Palestine through the memories of those who have lived it.
Ordinary Palestinians have rarely narrated their own history. In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed author Ramzy Baroud draws on dozens of interviews to produce vivid, intimate and beautifully written accounts of Palestinian lives – in villages, refugee camps, prisons and cities, in the lands of their ancestors and in exile. Baroud’s empathetic and lyrical approach reveals new human dimensions of the Palestinian saga, telling it as it has never before been told.
Against dominant narratives, The Last Earth reclaims Palestine’s past – and present – for all its people.
