On 19 January 1992, Dr Albert Glock – an American archaeologist – was murdered by an unidentified gunman in the Israeli-occupied West Bank town of Bir Zeit. Who had killed him? And why?
Part history, part true-crime, Palestine Twilight weaves the facts of Glock’s murder with the brutal, febrile politics of the Intifada. Edward Fox’s pursuit of the truth leads him deep into the dangerous, edgy society of the Occupied West Bank, and his book is a work of stark originality that conveys an intense portrait of the Palestinian dilemma. It is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the Arab-Israeli conflict.
