A Discourse on Domination in Mandate Palestine: imperialism, property and insurgency
Zeina B. Ghandour
Date: 2006, 2008
Brief: proofreading, light copy-editing and formatting in accordance with publisher’s house style
Job Description: I first proofread this when it was being submitted as a PhD thesis at the London School of Economics (LSE). Two years later, when it was being published as a book by Routledge, Zeina asked me to convert the manuscript into the publisher’s house style. As she is also a novelist, her thesis had a unique narrative style and her elegant writing called for a sensitive but nonetheless thorough approach.
As I work on this, I am more and more in awe of the job you’ve done for me. Thank you for your cool and calm help and general slickness. I would have been in a last-stages frenzy without you.
Dr Zeina Ghandour, Lecturer in Law, Birkbeck, University of London
