‘Hundred Year’s War on Palestine’ book launch with Prof. Rashid Khalidi

13 May 2020

The twentieth century for Palestine and the Palestinians has been a century of denial: denial of statehood, denial of nationhood and denial of history. This book is Rashid Khalidi’s powerful response. Drawing on his family archives, he reclaims the fundamental right of any people: to narrate their history on their own terms.

In this book launch, Prof. Khalidi (Columbia University) discusses his book with Rana Barakat (Birzeit University). This was an online webinar that took place on 11th May 2020, held in partnership with the Educational Bookshop (Jerusalem) and the Khalidi Library (Jerusalem).
