About this product
- DescriptionThis series of meditations on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict argues that it represents a struggle t as much about land and history as about space, time and memory. Juxtaposing entries from Jonathan Boyarin's diary wi th critical and theoretical articulations, this text shows t only the unfinished nature of anthropological endeavour, but also the author's personal stake in the ethical predicament of being a Jew at this point in history. It enacts rather than reports on Boyarin' process of error, pain, impatience, uncertainty, discovery, embarrassment, self-criticism, intellectual struggle, and dawning awareness. Ultimately, it gives the lie, as the Palestinian presence does in Israel, to any concept of a finishedness that successfully conceals its unruly and painful multiple process.
