Book description

This volume presents new perspectives on Israeli society, Palestinian society, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Based on historical foundations, it examines how Israel institutionalizes ethnic privileging among its nationally diverse citizens. Arab, Israeli, and American contributors discusses the paradoxes of democratic claims in ethnic states, as well as dynamics of social conflict in the absence of equality. This book advances a new understanding of Israel's approach to the Palestinian citizens, covers the broadest range of areas in which Jews and Arabs are institutionally differentiated along ethnic basis, and explicates the psychopolitical foundations of ethnic privileges. It will appeal to students and scholars who seek broader views on Israeli society and its relationship with the Arab citizens, and want to learn more about the status of the Palestinian citizens in Israel and their collective experience as both citizens and settler-colonial subjects.

Reviews

'The essays in this volume incisively and insightfully explore key dimensions of the status of the Palestinian minority in Israel, a state which structurally privileges its Jewish majority. Anyone interested in a fuller understanding of the collective experience of Palestinians in Israel, and the means by which they have been subordinated and relegated to second-class citizenship, will find Israel and its Palestinian Citizens very useful.'

Zachary Lockman - New York University

'The demise of the two state solution is likely to increase the political role of the Palestinian citizens inside Israel and intensify their relations with other Palestinians in the West Bank and beyond. This book is thus timely as it provides a concise, clear and factual introduction to the group’s history and to their present social, economic, legal and political situation. The essays puncture one after the other the myths of Israeli internal democracy. They illustrate the disenfranchisement of the Palestinian minority, through open legal discrimination, segregated schooling, political manipulation and exclusion, cultural denigration, and more. The book’s admirable social science vindicates critiques familiar to the participants but long denied by supporters of Israeli state policy. Some readers may find it shocking, but hopefully others will also find it compelling.'

Duncan Kennedy - Harvard Law School
