Demonstrates with cold precision how the consistent denial of truth about the Palestinians by governments and the media in the West has led to the current impasse in Middle East politics. Controversial, forceful, and 'above all' honest, it attempts to redress a sustained crime against historical truth in order to make a more rational political future in Palestine possible. Searing essays from Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Peretz Kidron, G. W. Bowerstock, Ibrahim and Janet L. Abu-Lughod, Mumammad Hallaj, Elia Zureik, and Rashid Khalidi.
