I’ve downloaded the sample. As a New Zealander this option makes sense. Nothing is perfect, but two states for New Zealand would not make sense, no matter how unfair the history.
This review makes it clear what the book is about.
Intelligent writing and vision make this a must-read, November 30, 2006
By Lora Gordon
This review is from: One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse (Hardcover)
Rather than rehashing the same dead arguments on Palestine/Israel or relying on ‘blame game’ rhetoric, this book offers a refreshing vision of the future: one democratic state for Palestinians and Israeli Jews, living side by side with equal rights. Certainly not a new vision, as the author duly notes, but rarely argued so cogently and with such sound vision for the future. Abunimah draws on successful examples of multi-ethnic states (Belgium, Ireland, South Africa) to shape his argument for a multi-ethnic Palestine-Israel, and to envision how two peoples locked into conflict by decades of oppression might come together.
