Product Description
Product Details


"This is the story of how Sari Nusseibeh, committed all his life to Palestinian national liberation, committed himself also to Palestinian-Israeli peace. Modestly told, but wonderfully engaging, it is a tale of political independence and moral courage." --Professor Michael Walzer, Institute of Advanced Study, author of "Politics and Passion: Toward a More Egalitarian Liberalism ""Sari Nusseibeh is a man of enormous personal integrity, courage and vision. If the people of Israel and Palestine some day enjoy the peace and national sovereignty that they deserve, they will owe a lot to Sari Nusseibeh's pioneering leadership."--Paul Wolfowitz ""Once Upon a Country" is a subtle, sad, and humorous memoir that casts a fresh light on the Israeli-Palestinian tragedy, and a vivid picture of Palestinian society as well."--Amos Oz, author of "A Tale of Love and Darkness ""From the first elegant sentence, Sari Nusseibeh uses his poetic sensibility to illuminate the dislocation, oppression, fratricide, and extremism that have plagued his 'violated and broken land.' In his honest and unsparing account of a remarkable life, this courageous advocate for peace makes clear why this tragic conflict is so enduring, and a resolution so essential."--Richard North Patterson, author of "Exile ""This is a compelling narrative of a life lived at the cross-roads of history, which is also a moving personal story of an individual of rare integrity who creates a political vision that is both true and useful. It is difficult to find the 'middle ground' in the Middle East conflict, but Sari Nusseibeh opens up a space for reflection and dialogue that balances the cunning of history with the irony of oneman's adventures and aspirations. AS he confronts his own complex circumstances, Nusseibeh reveals a landscape of hope, generosity and justice that makes this a crucial text of our times."--Homi K. Bhabha, Anne F. Rothenberg Professor of English and American Literature and Language Director, Harvard University
