Auteur: Sorkin, Michael (ed.)
Titel: Against The Wall
Sub titel: Israel's Barrier to Peace
Called a "security fence" by the Israeli government and the "apartheid wall" by Palestinians, the barrier currently under construction in the West Bank has been the subject of intense controversy since the first olive tree was uprooted in its path. In violation of a ruling by the International Court of Justice and a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly, the structure juts deep inside Palestinian territory, altering not only the geographical landscape, but the political one as well. This groundbreaking survey includes specially written texts, photographs and maps that offer a frank critique of the wall from a range of perspectives - legal, historical, architectural and philosophical. Renowned writer and architect Michael Sorkin has assembled commentary from various experts in the field, both Israeli and Palestinian. Together they reinforce a view widely held around the world (though not by the government of the United States): Israel's wall can act only as a barrier to future peace.
