Description : The claims to Palestine have a long history, which is often forgotten in the mass media communication of our time. News reports of the moments tend to look at the conflict in terms of isolated events, such as the June War of 1967, Palestinian commando raids, or even the 1969 raid on the Beirut international airport. These events, however, cannot be understood or properly interpreted without reference to the long history of claims to Palestine. In this volume, the author examines all these claims. Beginning with the indigenous populations and ancient empires, he traces the claims to Palestine of Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Zionism, the British, the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab states, the United Nations, the state of Israel, and the Palestinian refugees. -- Back cover.

Description : This book explores the political economy of Palestine through critical, interdisciplinary, and decolonial perspectives, underscoring that an approach to economics that does not consider the political—a de-politicized economics—is inadequate to understanding the situation in occupied Palestine. A critical interdisciplinary approach to political economy challenges prevailing neoliberal logics and structures that reproduce racial capitalism, and explores how the political economy of occupied Palestine is shaped by processes of accumulation by exploitation and dispossession from both Israel and global business, as well as from Palestinian elites. A decolonial approach to Palestinian political economy foregrounds struggles against neoliberal and settler colonial policies and institutions, and aids in the de-fragmentation of Palestinian life, land, and political economy that the Oslo Accords perpetuated, but whose histories of de-development over all of Palestine can be traced back for over a century. The chapters in this book offer an in-depth contextualization of the Palestinian political economy, analyze the political economy of integration, fragmentation, and inequality, and explore and problematize multiple sectors and themes of political economy in the absence of sovereignty.

Description : This collection of essays concerns the development of contextualized theologies of liberation in Palestine and the indigenous Palestinian people's struggle for justice and liberation. The work is innovative because of its inclusion of indigenous perspectives within its remit and the introduction of new concepts such as civil liberation theology. The collection offers other ways to look at biblical discourses and their impact on the ongoing conflict, ways to live peace, ways to be ethical when visiting these conflicted lands, understandings of resource ethics, and even a new way to understand how we approach our understanding of liberation theology. Contributors include well-known scholars from Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Palestinian-Israeli, Indian, American, and British contexts. This work goes beyond standard academic collections. It is aimed not only at scholars and students but also at peace activists and policymakers. It should be of use not only in academic courses but also for practitioners of conflict resolution, peace and reconciliation.

Description : Drawing on intensive firsthand experience gained during the most successful years of Arab-Israeli peace negotiations, Harold Saunders explains the complexities of the peace process: it was not just a series of negotiated agreements but negotiation embedded in a larger political process. In the first edition of The Other Walls, Saunders argued persuasively that until leaders change the political environment by lowering the human and political barriers to peace, negotiators stand little chance. Now he places that focus on political process in the context of a new world—where familiar concepts of international relations no longer provide adequate explanations for events, and where the tools of statecraft do not produce expected results. In the wake of the Gulf War Saunders suggests how insights from earlier Arab-Israeli peace negotiations can lead to a broader regional process. Originally published in 1991. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Description : In 1917, the British issued the Balfour Declaration for military and strategic reasons. This book analyses why and how the British took on the Palestine Mandate. It explores how their interests and policies changed during its course and why they evacuated the country in 1948. During the first decade of the Mandate the British enjoyed an influx of Jewish capital mobilized by the Zionists which enabled them not only to fund the administration of Palestine, but also her own regional imperial projects. But in the mid-1930s, as the clouds of World War Two gathered, Britain’s commitment to Zionism was superseded by the need to secure her strategic assets in the Middle East. In consequence she switched to a policy of appeasing the Arabs. In 1947, Britain abandoned her attempts to impose a settlement in Palestine that would be acceptable to the Arab States and referred Palestine to the United Nations, without recommendations, leaving the antagonists to settle their conflict on the battlefield. Based on archival sources, and the most up-to-date scholarly research, this comprehensive history offers new insights into Arab, British and Zionist policies. It is a must-read for anyone with an interest in Palestine, Israel, British Colonialism and the Middle East in general.

Description : This volume addresses a number of philosophical problems that arise in consideration of the century-old conflict between Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs. Consisting of essays by fifteen contributors (including both Israeli and Palestinian philosophers) and a detailed introduction by the editor, it deals with rights to land, sovereignty, self-determination, the existence and legitimacy of states, cultural prejudice, national identity, intercommunal violence, and the relevance of religious claims to normative disputes. The discussion of these general topics is interwoven with a look at the more particular issues of anti-Semitism, Zionism, Palestinian nationalism, the Israeli occupation, the Intifada, and possible solutions to the conflict. In addition to being the first anthology in English devoted to the philosophical issues engendered by this conflict, the book also presents differing (and often opposed) perspectives and includes contributions from Israeli Jews as well as from Palestinian Arabs. Many of the contributors have had firsthand experience with this conflict, and some are actively involved in related political activities.

Description : After half a century of occupation and tremendous costs of the conflict, Israel is still struggling with the idea of a Palestinian state in what is often perceived as the Biblical Eretz Israel. Mapping Zionism, enemy images, peace and war policies, as well as democracy within the Jewish State, the present study offers original insights into Israel’s role in this conflict. By analyzing Israeli history, politics and security-oriented political culture as it has been evolving from 1948 on, this book reveals the ideological and political structures of a Zionist-oriented state and society. In doing so, it uncovers the abyss between the Zionist vision of Eretz Israel on the one hand and the aspiration to achieve normalization, peace and security on the other. In view of this conflict-laden bi-national reality, the Palestinian question is identified as the Achilles‘ heel of Jewish statehood in the Land of Israel. Thus, Zionist Israel and the Question of Palestine provides a fresh, innovative, critical and yet accessible perspective on one of the most controversial issues in contemporary history.

Description : A New Critical Approach to the History of Palestine discusses prospects and methods for a comprehensive, evidence-based history of Palestine with a critical use of recent historical, archaeological and anthropological methods. This history is not an exclusive history but one that is ethnically and culturally inclusive, a history of and for all peoples who have lived in Palestine. After an introductory essay offering a strategy for creating coherence and continuity from the earliest beginnings to the present, the volume presents twenty articles from twenty-two contributors, fifteen of whom are of Middle Eastern origin or relation. Split thematically into four parts, the volume discusses ideology, national identity and chronology in various historiographies of Palestine, and the legacy of memory and oral history; the transient character of ethnicity in Palestine and questions regarding the ethical responsibilities of archaeologists and historians to protect the multi-ethnic cultural heritage of Palestine; landscape and memory, and the values of community archaeology and bio-archaeology; and an exploration of the “ideology of the land” and its influence on Palestine’s history and heritage. The first in a series of books under the auspices of the Palestine History and Heritage Project (PaHH), the volume offers a challenging new departure for writing the history of Palestine and Israel throughout the ages. A New Critical Approach to the History of Palestine explores the diverse history of the region against the backdrop of twentieth-century scholarly construction of the history of Palestine as a history of a Jewish homeland with roots in an ancient, biblical Israel and examines the implications of this ancient and recent history for archaeology and cultural heritage. The book offers a fascinating new perspective for students and academics in the fields of anthropological, political, cultural and biblical history.

Description : This open access book investigates the transnationally connected history of Arab Christian communities in Palestine during the British Mandate (1918-1948) through the lens of the birth of cultural diplomacy. Relying predominantly on unpublished sources, it examines the relationship between European cultural agendas and local identity formation processes and discusses the social and religious transformations of Arab Christian communities in Palestine via cultural lenses from an entangled perspective. The 17 chapters reflect diverse research interests, from case studies of individual archives to chapters that question the concept of cultural diplomacy more generally. They illustrate the diversity of scholarship that enables a broad-based view of how cultural diplomacy functioned during the interwar period, but also the ways in which its meanings have changed. The book considers British Mandate Palestine as an internationalised node within a transnational framework to understand how the complexity of cultural interactions and agencies engaged to produce new modes of modernity. Karène Sanchez Summerer is Associate Professor at Leiden University, The Netherlands. Her research considers the European linguistic and cultural policies and the Arab communities (1860-1948) in Palestine. She is the PI of the research project (2017-2022), 'CrossRoads: European Cultural Diplomacy and Arab Christians in Palestine (1918-1948)' (project funded by The Netherlands National Research Agency, NWO). She is the co-editor of the series 'Languages and Culture in History' with W. Frijhoff, Amsterdam University Press. She is part of the College of Experts: ESF European Science Foundation (2018-2021).

Description : Covering topical issues concerning the nature of the Israeli state, this engaging work presents essays that combine a variety of comparative schemes, both internal to Jewish civilization and extending throughout the world, such as: modern Jewish society, politics and culture historical consciousness in the twentieth century colonialism, anti-colonialism and postcolonial state-building. With its open-ended, comparative approach, Israel in History provides a useful means of correcting the biases found in so much scholarship on Israel, be it sympathetic or hostile. This book will appeal to scholars and students with research interests in many fields, including Israeli Studies, Middle East Studies, and Jewish Studies.

Description : From the Back Cover November 1917: as Allied forces swept into Palestine, the British War Cabinet issued the Balfour Declaration which promised to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish homeland. Imbued with a sense of superiority and supremely confident, Britain administered an Empire that extended across the seven seas. September 1939: on the eve of WW2, Britain treacherously abandoned the Balfour Declaration in an act of appeasement towards Arab nationalism, and severed the Jews' main escape route from the Holocaust. May 1948: Britain was forced into a humiliating withdrawal from Palestine. While Israel prepared for independence the British Empire, economically ruined by the cost of victory in WW2, began a spectacular collapse. How did the Balfour Declaration come about? Why did Britain renege on her commitments to the Jews? What were the dreadful consequences of this betrayal? Why did the British Empire crumble so spectacularly? David Gibson examines these questions in light of a conviction that the restoration of Israel is the fulfilment of Prophetic Scripture. He offers a compelling fresh perspective on historical narratives that have been twisted by those who seek to undermine Israel's right to exist. Product Description: Jerusalem, the eternal city, has always held a mystical significance for Jews which is mournfully expressed in the lamenting of the exiles in Babylon (Psalm 137:1-6). Jerusalem is the "heartbeat" of God's ancient people, no matter where in the world they reside. Jewish history and destiny are irrevocably and forever interwoven with those of Jerusalem. For nearly two millennia, the Jews scattered amongst the nations were praying that God would bring about their return to Zion at a time of his choosing. But the idea was little more than a pious aspiration until late in the 19th Century when, in mainland Europe, such nationalist ideals began gaining momentum. In parallel with this rising tide of Zionism amongst European Jews, British Evangelical churches were at the forefront of a movement that took seriously prophetic scriptures that told of the restoration of Israel and were praying ardently for their fulfilment. The influences of this movement were deeply rooted in British political circles at the very moment that Allied forces under the command of General Allenby were sweeping through Palestine during WW1. And so the destinies of Britain and Israel became intertwined in the providence of God during the birth pangs of modern Zionism. The British Christian Zionist movement was kindling the fire of modern Jewish Zionism just as Britain was on the cusp of taking control of Palestine. On 2 November 1917, the Balfour declaration was issued by the British government, promising support for the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. The declaration was subsequently incorporated into a Mandate for British rule in Palestine after WW1. On 14 May 1948, as the leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine gathered together in Tel Aviv to declare the rebirth of the State of Israel, the British were forced into an ignominious withdrawal, accused of betraying the Jews by an act of political appeasement that had sealed the fate of hundreds of thousands of Jews by severing their only escape route from the horror unfolding in Europe. In an act of ruthlessly calculated political expediency on the eve of WW2, Britain callously broke faith with the promises made in the Balfour Declaration in order to mitigate the risk of the Arabs uniting with Nazi Germany, knowing that the price of this appeasement would be paid by the blood of the Jews. Jews and their supporters believed that the re-creation of the Jewish State in her ancient homeland was nothing short of a God ordained miracle, the fulfilment of Ezekiel's evocative vision of the valley of dry bones reforming into a vast living army (Ezekiel 37:1-14). So how would God judge Britain for her perfidious and morally bankrupt conduct?

Description : This collective book is the first volume of the social sciences oriented series Controversies from the Promised Land. Mainly Palestinian academics and opposition leaders (Hamas, Islamic Jihad) analyze and interpret the socio-political situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, 6 years after the Israeli-Palestinian «Oslo Agreements». «Academic Studies» and «Essays-Reports-Opinion Papers» build the two parts of this book. It addresses scholars, decision-makers, opinion-leaders who want to understand roots and essentials of a historical and political conflict which endorses the whole 20th century, displaying enough vicious potential to remain on stage after the Year 2000, too.
