The Israel/Palestine Question

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 1999 - History - 278 pages
With a fully updated introduction referencing up-to-date historiography in the field, this outstanding collection draws largely on scholarly debates in Israel during the last two decades and presents the most recent developments in the historiography of the Arab-Israeli conflict and a critical reassessment of Israel's past. In this new edition, with articles written only by Palestinians and Israelis, Pappé has included a new section on women's history in the region, containing historiographical as well as chronological material, and new articles on minorities and land ownership. Pappé's timely anthology is essential reading for all those who are interested in the politics in the Middle East.
