"Max Blumenthal audaciously takes in-your-face, on-the-ground journalism into the realm of geopolitics."
      Juan Cole, author of The New Arabs  and Engaging the Muslim World
     
One year ago Israel launched air strikes on Gaza, followed by a ground invasion. The ensuing 51 days of this assault left more than 2200 people dead, the vast majority of whom were Palestinian civilians, including more than 500 children. 10,000 homes were destroyed. The United Nations has stated that 300,000 Palestinians were displaced. Max Blumenthal was in Gaza throughout this catastrophe. In this explosive masterpiece of intimate reportage, he reveals the harrowing conditions and cynical deceptions that led to this ruinous 'war' and tells many of the human stories otherwise buried.
     
He brings Gaza to life and details the ferocious clashes when the Israeli military occupied this desperately poor strip of land.  He discloses the truth behind numerous Israeli claims and such contentious issues as the use of civilians as human shields by Israeli forces, the official targetting of Palestinian civilians and other war crimes of the Israeli armed forces. He carefully  examines  the military doctrine responsible. He provides exceptionally moving testimonies from residents. The ravaged population of Gaza was left out in the cold, with no relief from the international community and inadequate coverage by mainstream media. Here at last is the truth of this globally condemned war.

"Max Blumenthal has spent the last decade transforming himself into one of  the most vital voices in journalism today, always speaking truth to power with fearlessness and integrity."  Reza Aslan, author of Zealot

Max Blumenthal is the author of Republican Gomorrah and Goliath. A senior writer for Alternet, his writings have also appeared in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The Guardian, Salon.com, and many others.

Philip Maldari is the veteran host of KPFA's Sunday Morning Show.
