Reading List

Harry Fear / Oslo

I regularly get asked for a reading list after my talks and lectures on Gaza, campaigning and reporting, so I maintain this list of recommended reads to help encourage further discovery.

Freedom Next Time

This is the first book that initially lit a spark of outrage in my heart at Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians.

More Bad News

This incredible piece of academic work empirically and analytically documents the effective pro-Israel bias in the UK mainstream media.

Media and Societal Analysis

21st Century Newspeak

This is one of my favourite books of all time and documents various important and symbolic examples of UK mainstream media bias, providing a continuous societal and philosophical context.

The Sane Society

This important book provides a historic background on issues pertaining to freedom, psychological independence, dissention and the psycho-spiritual-societal implications of our societies.


Palestinian Walks

A captivating and personally profound book that first drew me to visit the West Bank in early 2010.

Israel’s Dead Soul

Although I haven’t read this book, I hope to buy the time to read it one day soon! It apparently looks at the failures of Zionism as an ideology and as a base for discourse.

Gaza & Other

Footnotes on Gaza

From epic visual story-teller Joe Sacco, this book looks at the Gazan city of Khan Yunis.

Hold Everything Dear

This wonderful meditative set of stories from John Berger helped inspire me to first visit Gaza.
