Abstract

Before Their Diaspora is a visual journey into Palestine before 1948. Every important aspect of Palestinian society comes to life in the nearly 500 photographs, carefully selected from thousands available in private and public collections throughout the world. Each of the five chapters of the work contains a succinct overview of the major developments during the period covered by the chapter and a detailed chronology of its main events. Captions for each photo identify personalities, locations, events, and context. Six maps accompany the text.
