This book presents the personal narratives of six Palestinians-four men and two women-whose stories are central to describing the greater Palestinian plight in the Gaza Strip, the Intifada, the beginning of the 1993 peace process, and beyond. Each Palestinian has related crucial events in his or her life story, and by reading their accounts, we come to see the struggle through their eyes and put a human face on events that Western media and consciousness have only partially explored. The story of the Intifada in the Gaza Strip, with its tragic and inspiring outcomes, is slowly fading from the world's collective memory. In the final weeks of 1987, however, this small strip of land became the major battleground of what the authors consider one of the few authentic national rebellions of the second half of the 20th century. This book presents the personal narratives of six Palestinians-four men and two women-whose stories are central to describing the greater Palestinian plight in the Gaza Strip, the Intifada, the beginning of the 1993 peace process, and beyond. Each Palestinian has related crucial events in his or her life story, and by reading their accounts, we come to see the struggle through their eyes and put a human face on events that Western media and consciousness have only partially explored. This book is an important corrective for scholars, students, researchers, and the general reading public concerned about the contemporary Middle East and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book's valuable contribution is it's details of political life and resistance under Israeli occupation, from the crushing poverty of life in the camps, to the humiliation, beating, threats, arrests, sexual harassment, prison experiences, and use of collaborators by the occupation authorities to suppress any buds of national resistance. Readers unfamiliar with the history of Gaza Strip no doubt will find the "banalities of the occupation" shocking, especially to learn how Israel deliberately prevented the establishment of adequate medical facilities and even made the possession of fax machines illegal."-Journal of Palestine Studies
"Beyond Intifada is a welcome contribution to International Studies collections with respect to the Palestinian/Israeli ethnic, political, cultural, and national disputes."-Wisconsin Bookwatch
"A deeply personal and emotionally moving account that lends human faces to the strife and turmoil that have been ongoing within the Holy Land, Beyond Intifada is a welcome contribution to International Studies collections with respect to the Palestinian/Israeli ethnic, political, cultural, and national disputes."-Internet Bookwatch
"In this highly readable book, two Israeli scholars and a Palestinian freelance journalist explain the plight of the Palestinians through personal narratives of six Palestinians. Their painful stories present unique appreciation of the complexities of the forces that have shaped the Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation since 1987. Highly recommended. General readers as well as students and scholars."-Choice
