The Palestine Nakba : Decolonising History, Narrating the Subaltern, Reclaiming Memory Paperback / softback

Description

2012 marks the 63rd anniversary of the Nakba - the most traumatic catastrophe that ever befell Palestinians.

This book explores new ways of remembering and commemorating the Nakba.

In the context of Palestinian oral history, it explores 'social history from below', subaltern narratives of memory and the formation of collective identity.

Masalha argues that to write more truthfully about the Nakba is not just to practise a professional historiography but an ethical imperative.

The struggles of ordinary refugees to recover and publicly assert the truth about the Nakba is a vital way of protecting their rights and keeping the hope for peace with justice alive. This book is essential for understanding the place of the Palestine Nakba at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the vital role of memory in narratives of truth and reconciliation.
