And the sources of the violence are varied also: from the public violence of the enemy to the more private violence of the family. Maria Holt uses her research gathered in the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon and in the West Bank to look at the forms of violence suffered by women in the context of the wider conflict around them. Drawing on first-hand accounts of women who have either participated in, been victims of or bystanders to violence, Women and Conflict in the Middle East highlights the complex situation of these refugees, and explores how many of them become involved in resistance activities.

It thus makes essential reading for students of the Israel-Palestine conflict as well as those interested in the gender dimension of conflict.
