"Deploying a unique combination of creative design, scholarly rigor, and unwavering moral commitment, Visualizing Palestine helps us glimpse the myriad cruelties and excruciating asymmetries of Israeli apartheid, colonization, and rapidly escalating violence against Palestinian people. This is political art and popular education at its most urgent and potent."
--Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and Doppelganger: A Trip Into the Mirror World

"The anatomy of an occupation laid bare."
--Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things

"Visualizing Palestine
embodies 'a picture is worth a thousand words' for one of the most critical global justice issues of our time. This book is a journey of storytelling, compelling facts, and imagery that reflect the conditions, hopes, struggles and aspirations of the Palestinian people. The narrative is shifting towards justice and Visualizing Palestine is at the center of it."
--Linda Sarsour, author of We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders: A Memoir of Love and Resistance

"Visualizing Palestine has captured nearly a century of Palestinian knowledge production in a series of striking visuals to further emphasize just how uncomplicated oppression is. The only controversy is whether this oppression should be accepted. Overcoming this hurdle is a battle over narrative and against racial-colonial logic. This text is a significant contribution in prevailing in both realms."
--Noura Erakat, Professor and author of Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine

"Visualizing Palestine has been generating visual data based on research that makes understanding the mechanics of colonial structures accessible to anyone interested in learning them. It is visual design in its noblest form, translating challenging realities into comprehensible graphics to communicate with the masses. An instrumental tool for shifting the global narrative on justice, Visualizing Palestine is visualizing justice."
--Bahia Shehab, Professor of Design, award winning artist and author

"This book has all the rigor of academia, the urgency of journalism, and the power of historical documentation."
--Mona Chalabi, Pulitzer Prize-winning data journalist

"These bold, perfectly designed and lucid graphics get straight to the point in illuminating the grave injustices perpetrated against the Palestinian people."
--Joe Sacco, author of Palestine and Footnotes in Gaza
