About this product
- DescriptionThe Arab-Israeli conflict goes far beyond the wars waged in the Middle East. There is a war of narratives revolving around the two defining traumas of the conflict: the Holocaust and the Nakba. One side is charged with Holocaust denial, the other with exploiting a tragedy while denying the tragedies of others. In this path-breaking book, political scientist Gilbert Achcar explores these conflicting narratives and considers their role in today's Middle East dispute. He analyzes the various Arab responses to the Holocaust - from the earliest intimations of the gecide, through the creation of Israel and the occupation of Palestine, and up to our own time - critically assessing the political and historical context for these responses.
- Author BiographyGilbert Achcar is Professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is the co-author of Perilous Power: The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy Dailogues on Terror, Democracy, War, and Justice (with Noam Chomsky).
