Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict, Paperback / softback Book

Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict Paperback / softback


First published in 1995, this highly acclaimed study scrutinizes popular and scholarly representations of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

It begins with a novel theoretical interpretation of Zionism, and then moves on to critically engage the influential studies of Joan Peters, Benny Morris, and Anita Shapira.

Carefully rehearsing the documentary record, Finkelstein also challenges the dominant images of the June 1967 and October 1973 Arab-Israeli wars.

In a comprehensive new introduction, he provides the most succinct overview available in the English language of the Israeli-Palestine conflict, while in several new chapters he juxtaposes Israeli policy in the Occupied Territories against South African apartheid, and demolishes the scholarly pretensions of Michael Oren's recent bestseller on the June 1967 war.
