Synopsis A moving and graphic first-hand account of life and work in Jordan Gaza the West Bank Lebanon Syria and Iraq from 1967-92. The author was involved in mother-and-child care education home management and health-care in a determined attempt to educate and improve the lives of the refugees. Skinner explains the impact of economic sanctions; she raises questions of humanity over politics and allows the dignity of people in distress to come to the surface. She follows the drama of the long drawn-out peace process through the dry intense heat and dust of summer followed by the floods mud and snow of winter. There is a lighter side too: the reader is given some of the history of Palestinian embroidery; the culinary delights of Arab hospitality; and the fascinating world of traditional bazaars. Autorenkommentar Join me on a unusual trip to the Middle EastAs the author I would like to share with you some extracts of reviews I have received: '...Exactly because Margarita Skinner has seen everything near at one's hand she keeps back any political explanations of the happenings around Israel Palestine of Jordan and the Fedayeen of Iraq and Saddam Hussein's failed superpower ambitions. Instead she opens her much more valuable treasure: direct and practical encounters with ordinary people. She learned of their characteristics and motivations working in a Mother Child Care programme in Amman or an embroidery project in the Gaza Strip; more than many a sociologist...Because Skinner always was with the victims her book is full of their vitality entertaining sardonic and rich on every day humour. But fundamentally it is without wanting to be a political accusation a stirring outcry over human suffering...' Neue Zürcher Zeitung Zürich - Switzerland (translated from German)'...Journalists diplomats and historians report in great outlines a view of the matters which are true to the events but very seldom give justice to the person concerned...Margarita Skinner who lived over 20 years in the Middle East chose the reverse perspective...Her view is the one from below and this permits her to give the unknown a name and the speechless a voice...' Tages Anzeiger Zürich - Switzerland (translated from German)'...Her book is a personal account of her long arduous and hazardous journey in helping the sick and infirm in the war zones of the region...Although harrowing these seemed as interludes in between her job of functioning as a social worker to refugees and displaced persons in the camps...But this is where the strength of her book lies. Her daily experience of dealing with people particularly women and children is enriching...But the book is by no means a journey of doom and gloom...' The Star Jordan's Political Economic and Cultural Weekly.'...she knows what she is talking about especially Palestinian embroidery as a statement about Palestinian life...' The Canberra Times Canberra - Australia'...well researched has delightful touches of humour and is a quality rare to come by thes days objective...'Saba Arafat Nablus - West Bank'...For all those who wonder about the real story of the Middle East the story behind the wars and the politics behind the statistics and the tragedies the real story of human lives this is the book you must read...The most obvious characteristic of this book is its first hand feel...' Rev.Dr. W.D. Adams Brisbane - Australia'...That she has been a witness to some of the most difficult periods of modern Middle Eastern history is illustrated by the titles of the book's chapters...Vivid descriptions of streets and markets cuisine and embroidery are well executed and bring their subjects alive in the tradition of the great female travel writers...most of the suffering in the Middle East is man made and therefore solvable. This is particularly evident in the chapters on 'The Refugees' and 'Iraq: 1991-2' the latter offering an excellent on-the-ground testimony to the realities of the situation...'Middle East International London Alle Produktbeschreibungen
