My father was a freedom fighter: Ramzy Baoud’s UK tour

Internationally-respected Palestinian-American writer Ramzy Baroud is touring Britain with his phenomenal new book, My Father was a freedom fighter: Gaza's untold story (Pluto Press 2010).


Noam Chomsky: "Ramzy Baroud's sensitive, thoughtful, searching writing penetrates to the core of moral dilemmas that their intended audiences evade at their peril."

Gilad Atzmon: "Ramzy Baroud’s My father was a freedom fighter is more than a book, it is actually a masterpiece. Ramzy’s father, Mohammed, was a freedom fighter. He didn’t win a single war, not even a battle, yet against all odds, in spite of his poverty and illness, he managed to educate his children and to plant hope in their young souls."

Cindy and Craig Corrie, The Rachel Corrie Foundation: "This book should be read by all who struggle to understand the Middle East and to find passage to a just peace in the region."
