Scribe is thrilled to share that Antony Loewenstein’s The Palestine Laboratory has been awarded the 2023 Walkley Book Award. We are proud to see this terrific recognition of a brave work of long-form investigative journalism.
The judges have described the book as ‘an exposé of the policies, weaponry and technology that the Israeli government has deployed against Palestine and sold around the world – from hacking software to drones and even 3G mapping. Deeply researched, the judges found this brave independent journalism, backed by a small, committed publishing house.’
Congratulations again to Antony.
