The Road to Martyrs' Square
A Journey Into the World of the Suicide BomberBook - 2005
This book delves deep into the world of the Palestinian group Hamas, in an effort to understand what drives suicide bombers.Based on several years of research in the West Bank and Gaza strip, this unique study shows that the suicide bomber is a complex, contradictory construction, and can be explained neither in terms of cold efficacy nor sheer evil.Containing numerous conversations with leaders and followers of Hamas, including a rare interview with an attempted suicide bomber, this is an important and timely work that will challenge the way we think about the intifada, suicide bombers, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
