Demonstrates with cold precision how the consistent denial of truth about the Palestinians by governments and the media in the West has led to the current impasse in the Middle East. Attempts to redress a sustained crime against historical truth in order to make a more rational political future in Palestine possible.

"the wide-ranging scope and demythologising structure of Blaming The Victims makes it especially relevant at the present time when the actions of the state of Israel seem to contradict received opinion as to its nature. The book provides a great quantity of information, analyses it convincingly and, through an impressive body of notes on primary and secondary literature, points the reader in the direction of further information." Middle East International "These forcefully argued treatises will be as enlightening as they are disturbing for anyone with an interest in Middle East Politics." ALA Booklist
