Lecture by Macintyre on his latest book Gaza: Preparing for Dawn (Oneworld, 2017) in which he reveals Gaza's human tragedy through the stories of the ordinary people who live and work there. He portrays the suffering through siege and war, the failings - including those of the international community - that have seen opportunities for peace pass by and the fragile, lingering hope that Gaza, with its creativity and resilience, can be part of a better future for the Middle East.

Donald Macintyre was the Independent's Jerusalem bureau chief for eight years between 2004 and 2012, and before that its political editor and chief political commentator. He is a former presenter of BBC Radio 4's Week in Westminster. He won the Next Century Foundation's Peace through Media Award in 2011 and has previously been shortlisted for the Orwell Prize for Journalism.
