about this item

Drawing on a decade of pioneering reporting, Mya Guarnieri Jaradat brings us an unprecedented and compelling look at the lives of asylum seekers and migrant workers in Israel, who hail mainly from Africa and Asia. From illegal kindergartens to anti-immigrant rallies, from detention centers to workers’ living quarters, from family homes to the high court, The Unchosen sheds light on one of the most little-known but increasingly significant aspects of Israeli society.
 
In highlighting Israel’s increasingly harsh treatment of these newcomers, The Unchosen presents a fresh angle on the Israel-Palestine conflict, calling into question the state’s perennial justification of national security for mistreatment of Palestinians. More fundamentally, this beautifully written book captures the voices and the struggles of some of the most marginalized and silenced people in Israel today.
