Inter/Nationalism: Decolonizing Native America and Palestine / Steven Salaita

In Inter/Nationalism, Salaita argues that the seemingly disparate fields of Palestinian studies and American Indian studies have more in common than one may think and that American Indian and Indigenous studies must be more central to the scholarship and activism focusing on Palestine. 

The Last Refuge: A True Story of War, Survival and Life Under Siege in Srebrenica / Hasan Nuhanovic

The Last Refuge is a powerful first-hand account of the barbarism of those years leading up to the massacre in Srebrenica; it is also a compelling, action-packed and pertinent story of the life of a refugee and survival and heroism on the frontlines of a bitter conflict.
