If you are going to buy one book this year, make it The Prisoners' Diaries edited by Norma Hashim.  This book brings together the testimonies of former Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.  It is a powerful reminder of the injustice faced daily for over 60 years by the Palestinians, but also a message of hope from those who have suffered from some of the worst extremes.  Only £5, all profits go to charitable causes.
