We Could Be Free
Palestine in the Revolutionary Imagination
Palestine is a colonized territory between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. It is also a potent global symbol of resistance to injustice. From the Black Lives Matter movement in Ferguson to the pipeline resistance at Standing Rock, activists across North America and around the world have drawn courage and inspiration from the Palestinian struggle for freedom.
In We Could Be Free, scholar and activist Steven Salaita examines the historical, material, and ideological connections between struggles against state violence and colonization around the world, and helps us to imagine the possibility of a freedom beyond oppression and exploitation.
