Hardcover with Jacket

This book is a vivid evocation of life in a Palestinian village more than 80 years ago. The 226 pictures, most of which are published here for the first time, have been selected from a unique collection of over 1000 photographs taken by the Finnish anthropologist Hilma Granqvist. The photographs were taken during a period of three years in the 1920s white Dr. Granqvist was conducting research in the little Muslim village of Artas near Bethlehem. Her pictures provide an unusually intimate portrait of a Palestinian village at one moment in history.
