Summary:"Driving in Palestine presents a visual account of the author's movement on the segregated roads in occupied Palestine. It also includes poetic and critical essays by Palestinian, Canadian, and Lebanese scholars and artists. Captured in motion, from the windows of moving vehicles, between 2010 and 2020, the photographs in the book expose hindrances to freedom of movement and surveillance apparatuses imposed on the Palestinian people by the Israeli settler colonial regime. The book reveals manifestations of Israel's systems of military occupation, colonization and Apartheid as related to restricting Palestinians freedom of movement. Some of the obstacles Palestinians face, which the book discloses, include segregated roads, watch towers, checkpoints, Jewish-only colonies and roads, Apartheid wall, surveillance cameras and balloons. The appalling effect of these structures includes crippling of the Palestinians daily activities, rapturing their social connectivity, and multiplying their suffering. The book invites readers to imagine themselves moving alongside an illegal Jewish-only colony atop a Palestinian mountain, glance at an Israeli soldier pointing their weapons from a watchtower, cross a military checkpoint where teenage soldiers hold machine guns, or contemplate surveillance at the sight of cameras and air balloon."--
