**New England Book Tour Comes to Boston!*
*"Palestine, Israel & U.S. Empire"
by: Richard Becker*

*Monday, October 19th - 6:00 PM
Dudley Public Library
65 Warren St., Roxbury*

Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire provides a sharp analysis of historic
and current events in the struggle for Palestine—from the division of the
Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the
founding of Israel and its regional role as a watchdog for U.S. interests,
to present-day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution.

The book’s narrative is firmly rooted in the politics of Palestinian
liberation. Here is a necessary introduction to the heroic efforts of the
Palestinian people to achieve justice in the face of seemingly
insurmountable odds.
