Author of Palestine, Israel and the US Empire ($17.95)
Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire provides a sharp analysis of the 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.
“A must-read for anyone seeking to understand the Palestinian cause.” – Samera Sood, executive board, Palestinian American Women’s Association
“Becker foregrounds what others usually set aside: the integral role of U.S. imperialism, with the Zionist state as an essential partner. His approach connects the Palestinian struggle with a universal perspective, which gives the people dignity and strength.” – Joel Kovel, author, Overcoming Zionism
“This book is a clarion call to end the last vestiges of colonialism in the 21st century.” – Imam Mahdi Bray, executive director, Muslim American Society Freedom
