Reviews
"This is a sci-fi book about a dystopian future in which the government has decreed that large segments of the population may not vote and must be relegated to only a portion of the land. The government claims that this is decreed by God. A couple dozen of the most talented writers in the world have to come together to convince the world that the bombing of the families and children of that portion of land is wrong. It is a crazy read that would be horrifying if it were happening today."
--Boots Riley

"The growing recognition of the plight of Palestinians, and support for their struggle for their rights, particularly among younger people, is a welcome and important phenomenon. The contributions here both reflect these developments and should help inspire them."
--Noam Chomsky

"A pretty miraculous compilation of essays and poetry ... There is some beautifully rendered rage in this book that's been sitting in my chest ever since I put it down."
--Jezebel ("The Best Things We've Read, Heard and Seen in 2015 So Far")
