Aitemad Muhanna's book is a life history approach on the gender relations that occurred during the Second Intifada in Gaza. The book looks at how the Second Intifada affected not only economic activities, but how men and women relate to one another, their identities, agency and subjectivity during the crisis. Aitemad Muhanna, a researcher focusing on 'Women's Political Participation in the Arab Region', uses rich in-depth interviews tracing how men and women adjusted during the crisis. Muhanna's style of writing is accessible to the average reader and in each chapter she clearly defines each of the concepts which will be used and informs them with evidence from interviews as well as secondary data.
