Palestinian-American journalist, author, editor and former Al-Jazeera producer, Ramzy Baroud taught Mass Communication at Australia's Curtin University of Technology, and is Editor-in-Chief of the Palestine Chronicle.
Renowned American scholar, Noam Chomsky said of his work:
"Ramzy Baroud's sensitive, thoughtful, searching writing penetrates to the core of moral dilemmas that their intended audiences evade at their peril. Few are spared his perceptive eye, and only the morally callous will fail to respond to his pleas to look into the mirror honestly, to question comforting beliefs that protect us from facing our elementary responsibilities, and to act to remedy the terrible misery and injustice that he exposes to our view, as we surely can."
Baroud's work has been published in hundreds of newspapers and journals worldwide. His third book, My Father Was a Freedom Fighter: Gaza's Untold Story (Pluto Press, London, 2010 - Distributed jointly with Palgrave Macmillan), narrates the story of the life of his family, (his family is used as a representation of millions of Palestinians in Diaspora) starting in the early 1940ís until the present time. The book was translated and published in several languages shortly after the successful release of the English edition.
