DANCES with Death is an extraordinary personal account of Palestinian journalist Tuma Hazou’s experiences from a 40-year journalism career mostly spent reporting from the war-ravaged Middle East. As a young Palestinian, Tuma was accepted for a job at the BBC in London – their youngest announcer at just 22 years of age. After 10 years there he transferred to Jordan and in subsequent decades was at the heart of reporting on events in the Middle East.
