ABOUT THE BOOK:
Through a socialist, anti-imperialist lens, this book exposes the link between the struggle for freedom here in the US to the larger international struggle to build a better world, from the US to Palestine and beyond. It looks at both the historical and contemporary trajectory of the solidarity movement to describe what lessons can be gleaned for building a movement today, and lays out the unique case that understanding the solution to how justice can be achieved in Palestine has to take up the question of socialism regionally and internationally.
