Reapproaching Borders: New Perspectives on the Study of Israel-Palestineby Sandy Sufian
Synopses & Reviews
Territorial borders, identity borders, and many other kinds of social and cultural borders are constantly questioned in the Israel-Palestine debate. In Reapproaching Borders New Perspectives on the Study of Israel-Palestine, a new generation of scholars explore the concept of borders and how they are imagined and actualized in this deeply contested land.
Book News Annotation:
This collection of papers "reapproach" the borders of Israel-Palestine both in the sense of believing in the need for the reassessment of the conceptual underpinnings of national territorial borders and in the sense that they cross disciplinary boundaries. The 12 selections open with papers focusing on the historic production of narratives in Israel-Palestine and on Arab-Israeli relations from the late Ottoman through the post-1948 period. Editors LeVine (history, U. of California at Irvine) and Sufian (medical humanities and history, U. of Illinois--Chicago College of Medicine) also include a number of papers that consider health and science as areas within which to investigate the construction of Palestinian-Israeli community and national identities. A final set of contributions explores processes of urbanization in Israel-Palestine over the last century. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
