About Noura's new book, "Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine":

"Erakat...argues that the skillful use of international law as a tool of struggle can be generative of hope and possibility—for Palestine and the world. 'Justice for Some' is precisely the book we need at this time." -- Angela Davis, author of 'Freedom Is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine, and the Foundations of a Movement'

"Without any doubt, 'Justice for Some' is the best book on the law and politics of the Palestine/Israel struggle—sophisticated, learned, humane, and creative." --Richard Falk, Former UN Special Rapporteur for Palestine

"Noura Erakat communicates...with the skill of a lawyer and the passion of an activist. 'Justice for Some' is both enriching and inspiring."—Raja Shehadeh, founder of Al-Haq, independent Palestinian human rights organization.
