Haven't read Sacco's books for years, but from memory, "Palestine" was less political than another book on the same topic which was called "Gaza" or something similar. In the former, I think that he acknowledged that he should put the Israeli point of view, too, but that it would take a different book to the do that. In the latter, I think that he was firmer in his determination to put forward the Palestinian point of view and much less apologetic about being quite one-sided in his portrayal.
I read and enjoyed "Palestine" back in the 1990s, but must admit to only flipping through the Gaza one in a bookstore a couple of years ago.
