Abstract

Parasuicide in the Arab Palestinian society of the West Bank is investigated by looking at the public and private dimensions of a 'suicide phenomenon' which occurred in 1997. Research on parasuicide is reviewed along with Arab cultural ideas about self-harm and self-killing, including suicide and martyrdom, and the socio-historical and political contexts of contemporary Ramallah. The available suicide statistics and their social construction are discussed. Thirty one cases of parasuicide are examined within their social contexts and the implications of the findings of the study are considered.
