Israel's Occupation

Front Cover
University of California Press, 2008 - History - 318 pages
"Covering the four decades since the 1967 war rather than just the current situation, Israel's Occupation offers a unique perspective on the changing dynamics of the Israel-Palestine conflict."--Timothy Mitchell, author of Rule of Experts

"Interweaving a mountain of documents, reports, and firsthand testimonies, Neve Gordon, one of Israel's bravest intellectuals and activists, details and examines the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip as no one ever has before. His book will no doubt change the perspective from which the history of the occupation is told."--Eyal Weizman, author of Hollow Land

"Neve Gordon's Israel's Occupation provides a powerful and convincing structural framework for explaining Israel's changing methods of rule in the Palestinian territories from 1967 and until today. The arguments, insights, and supporting evidence are impressive, and the prose is written with a golden pen. This book will change the debate on Israel and its occupation, and I will not be surprised if Gordon's conceptual framework is harnessed to analyze the workings of other occupations, past and present. It's social science at its best."--Yinon Cohen, Columbia University
