Today’s world is one fraught with complexity. And in order to understand it, and have an impact on it, we’re sometimes best served by stepping back, getting a sense of the whole and perhaps enlisting the guidance of others familiar with the challenge.
Joining Peter to lend some clarity to one of the more vexing issues of our age–the Israel/Palestine conflict–are two able guides:
Sa’ed Atshan is a visiting assistant professor of peace and conflicts studies at Swarthmore College. He is also the author of a forthcoming book on the politics of international aid provision in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
Eve Spangler is a professor of sociology at Boston College and a human and civil rights activist whose work over the past decade has focused on the Israel/Palestine conflict. She is also most recently the author of the book, Understanding Israel/Palestine: Race, Nation and Human Rights in the Conflict.
