"In Condition Critical Alice Rothchild grabs for the truth behind the lies, writing with extraordinary moral clarity and a sharp eye for the injustices, absurdities, and cruel historical ironies that define Palestinian life on both sides of the Green Line." --Ben Ehrenreich, author, The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine
