Palestinian Identity: The Construction of Modern National Consciousness

by

Palestinian Identity: The Construction of Modern National Consciousness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I believe that discussions of whether a one-state or a two-state solution to this conflict is preferable have a slightly surreal quality in the current critical environment. What has to be done is not to debate how many states can dance on the head of a pin, but rather to devise how to reverse& mdash;very rapidly& mdash;the powerful current dynamic and get the Palestinian people out of the state they are in. The highly inequitable de facto one-state 'solution' now in effect looks more and more entrenched, but, paradoxically, I predict it will become more and more untenable and more violently unstable as time goes on.-From the new introduction

The foundational text on everyone's reading list, Palestinian Identity now features a new introduction by the author that reflecting on the significance of his work over the past decade and its relationship to the struggle for Palestinian nationhood. Khalidi also considers the future, expressing cautious optimism toward Israel's recognition of a Palestinian political entity yet wondering whether such acknowledgement will lead to Palestinian statehood and independence.
