The town of Bethlehem carries so many layers of meaning that it can feel like an unreal city, even to the people who call it home. Today, the city is hemmed in by a wall and surrounded by forty-one Israeli settlements and hostile settlers and soldiers. Blincoe tells the history of the famous town, through the visceral experience of living there, through the stone streets and desert wadis, monasteries, aqueducts and orchards, showing the city from every angle and era. Bethlehem is a much-loved Palestinian city, a source of pride and wealth but also a beacon of co-existence in a region where hopelessness, poverty and violence has become the norm. Bethlehem could light the way to a better future, but if the city is lost then the chances of an end to the Israel-Palestine conflict may be lost with it.
