Throughout Hazem Nusseibeh’s long and illustrious career as a senior politician and diplomat, the lure of Jerusalem, the city of his birth, remained strong.
In Jerusalemites, Dr Nusseibeh tells of growing up in British Mandate Palestine and recalls the pain inflicted on the Palestinians by the creation of Israel. He describes how he dedicated his professional life to the service of the Palestinian people and the goal of restoring their basic human rights. Dr Nusseibeh also provides unique inside accounts of some of the major events in contemporary Arab and international history.
"Having this vast experience in national and international affairs as his autobiography clearly shows, Dr. Nusseibeh speaks with authority and humility. His English is impeccable and his style frank. He is at his best when describing his beloved Jerusalem - and he is most interesting when reporting on his meetings with heads of state and world political personalities in the course of his long and illustrious career, and also when he provides inside accounts of major events that he witnessed or participated in, and others that show the human element of great men." - Issa J. Boullata, Professor Emeritus of Arabic Literature
