Stone Men: The Palestinians Who Built Israel
Ross shows how the stones of historic Palestine, and Palestinian labor, have been used to build the state of Israel—in the process, constructing "facts on the ground"—even while the industry is central to Palestinians' own efforts to erect bulwarks against the Occupation. Looking at the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in a new light, this book, largely based on field interviews in the region, asks how this record of labor and achievement can and should be recognized.
