The making of the Arab-Israeli conflict, 1947-51 by Ilan Pappé( Book )

47 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arabs and Jews describe the first Arab-Israeli war of 1948 in completely different ways. Among Arabs, and especially Palestinians, the events of that year are known as the "nakba"--The catastrophe, the trauma, the disaster. For Jews, and in particular for Israelis, their victory in the war of 1948 is a veritable miracle in which, against tremendous odds and through heroic military effort, the Jewish community succeeded in thwarting attempts by the Arab states to destroy it. This book integrates archival material with the findings of recent scholarship to present the reader with a history of the origins and consequences of the 1948 war. The author shows, in contrast to the recollections and myths of both sides, that the military events of 1948 were not decisive. The victory of the Zionist organization and the fate of the Palestinians was determined by politicians on both sides - in the discussions and decisions of the United Nations in 1947-8 and in the Arab League - long before a shot had been fired. The author argues that Israel's failure to take advantage of the genuine opportunity for peace with the Arabs at the UN-sponsored Lausanne Conference in 1949 resulted in the prolonged and tragic conflict between Israel and the Arab states still very much alive today. --From publisher's description

The forgotten Palestinians : a history of the Palestinians in Israel by Ilan Pappé( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 60 years, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have lived as Israeli citizens within the borders of the nation formed at the end of the 1948 conflict. Occupying a precarious middle ground between the Jewish citizens of Israel and the dispossessed Palestinians of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Palestinians have developed an exceedingly complex relationship with the land they call home; however, in the innumerable discussions of the Israel-Palestine problem, their experiences are often overlooked and forgotten. This book examines how Israeli Palestinians have fared under Jewish rule and what their lives tell us about both Israel's attitude toward minorities and Palestinians' attitudes toward the Jewish state. Drawing upon significant archival and interview material, this book analyzes the Israeli state's policy towards its Palestinian citizens, finding discrimination in matters of housing, education, and civil rights. Rigorously researched yet highly readable, this brings a new and much-needed perspective to the Israel-Palestine debate
The modern Middle East by Ilan Pappé( Book )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first introductory textbook on the modern Middle East to foreground the urban, rural, cultural and women's histories of the region over its political and economic history. Distancing himself from more traditional modernizing approaches, Ilan Pappe is concerned with the ideological question of whom we investigate in the past rather than how we investigate the past. Pappe begins his narrative at the end of the First World War with the Ottoman heritage, and concludes at the present day with the political discourse of Islam." "This second edition has been brought right up to date with recent events, and includes a new chapter on the media revolution and the effect of media globalization on the Middle East, and a revised and expanded discussion on modern Iranian history."--Jacket
The rise and fall of a Palestinian dynasty : the Husaynis, 1700-1948 by Ilan Pappé( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this Deeply Researched political biography, Ilan Pappe traces the rise of the Husayni family of Jerusalem, who dominated Palestinian history from the early 1700s until the second half of the twentieth century. Viewing this sweeping saga through the prism of one family, the book sheds new light on crucial events--the invasion of Palestine by Napoleon, the decline of the Ottoman Empire, World War I, Western colonialism, and the advent of Zionism--and provides an unforgettable picture of the Palestinian tragedy in its entirety. The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty is the history of Palestinian politics before national movements and political parties: at the height of the Husaynis' influence, positions in Jerusalem and Palestine could only be obtained through the family's power base. In telling the story of one family, the book highlights the continuity between periods customarily divided into pre-modern and modern, pre-Zionist and Zionist, illuminating history as it was actually lived. --Book Jacket

Jordan in the Middle East : the making of a pivotal state, 1948-1988( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of articles attempts to assess Jordan's position in the region in the light of its long quest for legitimacy, both as a state and as a Hashemite monarchy. The editors of the volume feel that developments since 1967 and particularly during the last decade have weakened the tendencies previously prevailing among various elements in the Arab world to question Jordan's legitimacy. Moreover, it is suggested that Jordan's position in the inter-Arab system has considerably improved."--BOOK JACKET
