Since the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, the region has been the scene of fierce power struggles, injustice and tragic events - a situation which persists to this day. Now for the first time, an Israeli-Arab author collaboration is tackling one of the world's most controversial situations. Published to accompany a six-part BBC television series by the makers of the award-winning DEATH OF YUGOSLAVIA, this myth-breaking book draws on candid interviews with key protagonists in the struggles - many of whom have never before spoken out - to reveal behind-the-scenes events and put the record straight. This is a definitive insiders' account of war and peace in the Middle East.

For more than 60 years, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have lived as Israeli citizens within the borders of the nation formed at the end of the 1948 conflict. Occupying a precarious middle ground between the Jewish citizens of Israel and the dispossessed Palestinians of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Palestinians have developed an exceedingly complex relationship with the land they call home; however, in the innumerable discussions of the Israel-Palestine problem, their experiences are often overlooked and forgotten. In this book, historian Ilan Pappe examines how Israeli Palestinians have fared under Jewish rule and what their lives tell us about both Israel's attitude toward minorities and Palestinians' attitudes toward the Jewish state. Drawing upon significant archival and interview material, Pappe analyzes the Israeli state's policy towards its Palestinian citizens, finding discrimination in matters of housing, education, and civil rights. Rigorously researched yet highly readable, "The Forgotten Palestinians" brings a new and much-needed perspective to the Israel-Palestine debate.

Los estudios sobre memoria han sido, desde el inicio, un campo interdisciplinario cuya complejidad incluye una variedad de objetos, metodologías y conceptos que constantemente lo modifican. Durante los últimos años hemos sido testigos de la notable trayectoria del término ‘transnacional’, que rápidamente reemplazó términos previos tales como ‘post-colonial’ o ‘multicultural’. En los estudios culturales, los estudios literarios, los estudios de migración, entre otros, ha ido imponiéndose en la última década un cambio de perspectiva, que por su alcance y repercusión, ha dado lugar a un transnational turn. Los artículos que integran este libro pueden ser leídos bajo esta luz, como ejemplos de una perspectiva que se focaliza en las interacciones entre lo global y lo local, explorando aquello que Michael Rothberg llama cualidad ‘anacrónica’ de la memoria, o mejor, su potencial político. En síntesis, este libro presenta un panorama de los objetos de interés actuales de algunos de los más renombrados representantes de los estudios sobre memoria y Derechos Humanos, como Pilar Calveiro, Rosario Figari Layús y Gabriella Citroni –incluyendo autores que no habían sido traducidos al español (Michael Rothberg, Gabriele Schwab y Philippe Mesnard)–, a fin de contribuir a la continuación del diálogo sobre una problemática que sigue siendo crucial.

The leftist forces are retreating north as Franco's army advances with the help of German and Italian aviation. Max Friedman approaches the front, posing as a photographer in a small group of foreign journalists. He flashes back to battles fought with his old comrade Guido Treves, who has gone missing and is the object of his mission. Amidst the ruin of war, Claire, the pretty Belgian reporter who got Max his press credentials, is developing a strong attraction to him, arousing the jealousy of her fellow reporter and would-be-boyfriend, Phil Lester. Caught in the middle of a retreat, Max and Claire get separated from the rest of their group. They have to cross a mountain pass and take shelter in a hut -- the romantic tension builds, but gets snuffed by the urgent need to press onward.
Author: Edward W. Said
Soon after the Oslo accords were signed in September 1993 by Israel and Palestinian Liberation Organization, Edward Said predicted that they could not lead to real peace. In these essays, most written for Arab and European newspapers, Said uncovers the political mechanism that advertises reconciliation in the Middle East while keeping peace out of the picture. Said argues that the imbalance in power that forces Palestinians and Arab states to accept the concessions of the United States and Israel prohibits real negotiations and promotes the second-class treatment of Palestinians. He documents what has really gone on in the occupied territories since the signing. He reports worsening conditions for the Palestinians critiques Yasir Arafat's self-interested and oppressive leadership, denounces Israel's refusal to recognize Palestine's past, and—in essays new to this edition—addresses the resulting unrest. In this unflinching cry for civic justice and self-determination, Said promotes not a political agenda but a transcendent alternative: the peaceful coexistence of Arabs and Jews enjoying equal rights and shared citizenship.
