Playing across a Divide

Benjamin Brinner

Oxford University Press

A ceremony was held on the West Bank to mark one of the first stages in the implementation of the 1993 Oslo Peace Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization. This was a closed event, marked by considerable tension. Most of the people present probably had had few peaceful or pleasant encounters with members of the other side, certainly not on a more or less equal footing. A few years later an audience gathered at a crafts fair below the walls of the Old City to hear another band, Bustan Abraham. The outdoor stage was situated in a park that lies between the centuries-old stone walls and the modern city. This book is about particular people, the situations in which they find themselves, and the paths that they make for themselves in this far-from-perfect world.
