An account of the first two years of the Intifada combines historical insights with first-hand experience to illuminate the movement's motives, views, hopes, and personalities

University of California Press
Combining the historian's depth of knowledge and perspective with vivid reportage that only first-hand experience of an event can bring, The Palestinian Uprising provides a compelling account of the Intifada's first two years. While in the Middle East, the author conducted extensive interviews with Palestinian journalists, academics, lawyers, teachers, physicians, former political prisoners, popular committee leaders, other activists, and residents of villages, refugee camps, towns, and cities all over the West Bank and Gaza. Augmenting these oral sources with extensive research in secondary published sources, Hunter brings the Intifada to life, conveying the aspirations, motives, viewpoints, and experiences of the people who actually created this revolt.

The Palestinian Uprising contains material never before recorded and provides the most comprehensive account to date of the origins, evolution, and significance of the Intifada.
