Teta, Mother, and Me: Three Generations of Arab Women by Jean Said Makdisi

$ 16.00

In this beautifully written memoir, which began as an inquiry into the lives of her grandmother and mother, Makdisi (sister of the late Edward Said) explores the lives of three generations of Palestinian women. While deftly illuminating a tumultuous century of modern Middle Eastern history, Makdisi raises important questions about the efficacy of ideology, the process of social development and the role of memory. Valuable in its insights, sophisticated in its execution, this book deserves to be widely read.
