Overview

Ilan Pappe's book traces the history of Palestine from the Ottomans in the nineteenth century, through the British Mandate, the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, and the subsequent wars and conflicts which have dominated this troubled region. The second edition of Pappe's book has been updated to include the dramatic events of the 1990s and the early twenty-first century. These years, which began with a sense of optimism, as the Oslo peace accord was being negotiated, culminated in the second intifada and the increase of militancy on both sides. Pappe explains the reasons for the failure of Oslo and the two-state solution, and reflects upon life thereafter as the Palestinians and Israelis battle it out under the shadow of the wall of separation. As in the first edition, it is the men, women and children of Palestine who are at the centre of Pappe's narrative.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Israeli and Palestinian people have established historical and emotional attachments to the land both have inhabited for a long period, and Palestine's modern history has been shaped largely by the struggle of these two peoples. In this well-researched and challenging book, Israeli academic Pappe (Haifa Univ.; The Israeli-Palestinian Question) traces developments in Palestine from the early 1800s to the 1948 establishment of Israel through to the present conflict. The author belongs to a small yet significant group of Israeli revisionist scholars and political commentators who seek to challenge the official government version of political developments in Israel/Palestine. Here he builds on his previous work on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict to chronicle the Palestinians' struggle to maintain their national and cultural identity under the increasingly harsh conditions imposed by the realities of Israeli policies in the occupied territories. The author utilizes sources in Hebrew, Arabic, and several Western languages to write a scholarly, yet accessible, history. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.-Nader Entessar, Spring Hill Coll., Mobile, AL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
