Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Dilemmas of Attachment: Identity and Belonging Among Palestinian Christians presents the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a preface. The book is based on 11 months of fieldwork among the Christian communities of the Bethlehem District, in the towns of Bethlehem, Beit Sahour and Beit Jala, over a period of two and a half years. Often referred to as 'the Christian Triangle', these towns have been shaped by the presence of a significant Christian minority, and a history of extensive contact with the Western world. The book briefly introduces the District of Bethlehem as a site of fieldwork, identifies some of the social divisions that characterize this area, and touches upon some of the central challenges.

Keywords: Bethlehem; Christian communities; church; Palestine
