Overview

This first complete history of Israel's occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip allows us to see beyond the smoke screen of politics in order to make sense of the dramatic changes that have developed on the ground over the past forty years. Drawing attention to the interactions, excesses, and contradictions created by the forms of control used in the Occupied Territories, Neve Gordon argues that the occupation's very structure, rather than the policy choices of the Israeli government or the actions of various Palestinian political factions, has led to a fundamental shift from a politics of life to a macabre politics characterized by an increasing number of deaths.

Editorial Reviews

Times Higher Education

“What is most interesting in Gordon's analysis is the way in which the renovation of occupation practices are identified as an immanent outcome of the ‘excesses and contradictions’ within the system itself.”
Palestine Chronicle

“Israel’s Occupation becomes a must read on my list; and my first question of anyone that wants to argue with any perspectives on Israel would be ‘Have you read this book yet?’”
Opednews.com - Jim Miles

“A must read.”
Middle East Journal

“This book is a significant contribution to our understanding Israel’s changing methods of rule during the four decades of occupation.”
Socialist Review: Monthly Mag Of The Socialist Workers Party - Katya Nasim

“A unique perspective on the changing dynamics of the Israel-Palestine conflict. . . . The breadth and detail of Gordon's scope provides a powerful systemic framework.”
Publishers Weekly

Applying the work of Michel Foucault to the contemporary Middle East, this highly theoretical book examines the "means of control used to manage" the Palestinian population in the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Gordon, a professor of politics at Ben-Gurion University, begins by exploring the diffuse mechanisms of power-in the political, civilian, geographical and economic arenas-used to normalize the occupation in its first years, making the ostensibly temporary occupation permanent. Later chapters take a more specific historical approach, examining a series of events that radically transformed these power structures: the first intifada, the Oslo Accords and the second intifada, which, the author argues, required a reorganization of Israeli power in the Occupied Territories, leading to the disregard of the Palestinians inhabiting those territories. Gordon focuses on the treatment of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and writes for a decidedly scholarly audience; as a result, the book's usefulness beyond academics will likely be limited.
