For much of her life—like many Westerners—most of what Pamela Olson knew of the Middle East was informed by headlines and stereotypes. But when she traveled to Palestine in 2003, she found herself thrown with dizzying speed into the realities of Palestinian life. Fast Times in Palestine is Olson’s powerful, deeply moving account of life in Palestine—both the daily events that are universal to us all (house parties, concerts, barbecues, and weddings) as well as the violence, trauma, and political tensions that are particular to the country. From idyllic olive groves to Palestinian beer gardens, from Passover in Tel Aviv to Ramadan in a Hamas village, readers will find Olson’s narrative both suspenseful and discerning. Her irresistible story offers a multi-faceted understanding of the Palestinian perspective on the Israel–Palestine conflict, filling a gap in the West’s understanding of the difficult relationship between the two nations. At turns funny, shocking, and galvanizing, Fast Times in Palestine is a gripping narrative that challenges our ways of thinking—not only about the Middle East, but about human nature, cultural identity, and our place in the world.

A generation ago interest in the history of Judaism was largely confined to Christian scholars. It amounted either to illustrative material, as in the case of the various lives of Christ, or in a study of what was popularly called the background of the New Testament. It was stimulated by the editing of a number of the apocalypses and the presentation of elements of rabbinical teaching. There was little appreciation of the genetic relationship between Christianity and Judaism, and the criticism of Pharisaism contained in the gospels was more or less unconsciously generalized into a description of a religion whose adherents were scattered throughout the Roman Empire. The thirty years which have passed since the first edition of this volume have seen a remarkable change in these respets.
