In this second edition ofThe Israel/Palestine Question, Ilan Papp'howcases 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'mphasizes a number of recent developments in the conventional historiography.

All the chapters in this edition are written by Israeli or Palestinian scholars, illustrating how much the desire 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 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 women's history.

With a fully updated introduction, Ilan Papp' timely anthology is a stimulating guide to the complex history and politics of the Middle East.

Ilan Papp's a senior lecturer in the Department of Political Science, at the University of Haifa. His publications includeBritain and the Arab'Israeli Conflict(1988),The Making of the Arab'Israeli Conflict, 1947'51(1994),  History of Modern Palestine (2003) andThe Modern Middle East(Routledge, 2005).
