Stillpoint: A Novel of War, Peace, Politics and Palestine
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Stillpoint is a gripping odyssey spanning two continents and three generations. It describes a clash of ideologies and the onset of a long and vicious war.
American and Israeli policies collide in the ancient battleground of Palestine.
Stillpoint is a lucid and compelling vision of what it means to bring truth and wisdom to the political arena. The reader is drawn into a vivid and haunting world, replete with unforgettable characters. Crisis and opportunity arise together in this sun drenched and fractured land.
The reader comes face to face with the question: “If this happened to me, what would I do...?”
George Santayana famously said: “Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.” Do we learn from history? Probably not. War is still as popular as ever.
We all know, that what we learn we can easily forget. But, understanding is of a different order altogether. When it happens, it’s permanent: It is the stillpoint of the turning world,” to which the poet T S Elliot refers.
The stillpoint is a place where understanding dawns, banishing the shadows of racial, religious and national biases that cloud our vision. What emerges is the world as it really is, and it is here that peace can take root.
