The Israel/Palestine Question


In this ground-breaking new edition of The Israel/Palestine Question, Ilan Papp showcases some of the most recent areas of scholarly interest in the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Including only works which challenge previous conceptions and paradigms, Ilan Papp emphasizes a number of recent developments in the conventional historiography.

All the chapters in this new edition are written by Israeli or Palestinian scholars, illustrating how much the drive to revisit the history of the conflict comes from historians belonging to the conflicting parties. The book also presents work influenced by wider historiographical developments, for instance the current interdisciplinary drive, as well as a sceptical view of elite historical narratives and the rise of non-elite history.

This new edition includes:

  • revisionist views on the formation of Palestine
  • revised sections on the history of the 1948 war and the experiences of Palestinians in Israel
  • a new section on womens history.

With a fully updated introduction, Ilan Papp's timely anthology is essential reading for all those who are interested in the history and politics of the Middle East.
