A landmark history of one hundred years of war waged against the Palestinians from the foremost US historian of the Middle East, told through pivotal events and family history In 1899, Yusuf Diya al-Khalidi, mayor of Jerusalem, alarmed by the Zionist call to create a Jewish national home in Palestine, wrote a letter aimed at Theodore Herzl: the country had an indigenous people who would not easily accept their own displacement. He warned of the perils ahead, ending his note, “in the name of God, let Palestine be left alone.” Thus Rashid Khalidi, al-Khalidi’s great-great-nephew, begins this sweeping history, the first general account of the conflict told from an explicitly Palestinian perspective. Drawing on a wealth of untapped archival materials and the reports of generations of family members—mayors, judges, scholars, diplomats, and journalists—The Hundred Years' War on Palestine upends accepted interpretations of the conflict, which tend, at best, to describe a tragic clash between two peoples with claims to the same territory. Instead, Khalidi traces a hundred years of colonial war on the Palestinians, waged first by the Zionist movement and then Israel, but backed by Britain and the United States, the great powers of the age. He highlights the key episodes in this colonial campaign, from the 1917 Balfour Declaration to the destruction of Palestine in 1948, from Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon to the endless and futile peace process. Original, authoritative, and important, The Hundred Years' War on Palestine is not a chronicle of victimization, nor does it whitewash the mistakes of Palestinian leaders or deny the emergence of national movements on both sides. In reevaluating the forces arrayed against the Palestinians, it offers an illuminating new view of a conflict that continues to this day.
Renowned scholar and historian Professor Khalidi draws on primary sources to give an intensely personal account of a century of conflict in Palestine.
Now entering its third edition, James L. Gelvin's award-winning account of the conflict between Israelis and their forebears, on the one hand, and Palestinians and theirs, on the other, offers a compelling, accessible and current introduction for students and general readers. Newly updated to take into account the effects of the 2010–11 Arab uprisings on the conflict and the recognition of Palestinian statehood by the United Nations, the book traces the struggle from the emergence of nationalism among the Jews of Europe and the Arab inhabitants of Ottoman Palestine through the present, exploring the external pressures and internal logic that have propelled it. Placing events in Palestine within the framework of global history, The Israel-Palestine Conflict: One Hundred Years of War skilfully interweaves biographical sketches, eyewitness accounts, poetry, fiction, and official documentation into its narrative.
Presents the history of the Crusades, including the organizational problems, the multiple political alliances, biographies of notable figures on both sides of the conflict, and the reasons for the final defeat of the Europeans.
Electricity is an integral part of everyday life—so integral that we rarely think of it as political. In Electrical Palestine, Fredrik Meiton illustrates how political power, just like electrical power, moves through physical materials whose properties govern its flow. At the dawn of the Arab-Israeli conflict, both kinds of power were circulated through the electric grid that was built by the Zionist engineer Pinhas Rutenberg in the period of British rule from 1917 to 1948. Drawing on new sources in Arabic, Hebrew, and several European languages, Electrical Palestine charts a story of rapid and uneven development that was greatly influenced by the electric grid and set the stage for the conflict between Arabs and Jews. Electrification, Meiton shows, was a critical element of Zionist state building. The outcome in 1948, therefore, of Jewish statehood and Palestinian statelessness was the result of a logic that was profoundly conditioned by the power system, a logic that has continued to shape the area until today.

For decades, secular nationalism held sway as the dominant political ideology, but since the 1990s its structures have weakened and Islamic institutions have gained strength. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and interview data, Palestinian Chicago charts the origins of these changes and the multiple effects they have had on identity across religious, political, class, gender, and generational lines. The perspectives that emerge through this rich ethnography challenge prevailing understandings of secularity and religion, offering critical insight into current debates about immigration and national belonging.
Violence and war have raged between Zionists and Palestinians for over a century, ever since Zionists, trying to establish a nation-state in Palestine, were forced to confront the fact that the country was already populated. Covering every conflict in Israel’s history, War over Peace reveals that Israeli nationalism was born ethnic and militaristic and has embraced these characteristics to this day. In his sweeping and original synthesis, Uri Ben-Eliezer shows that this militaristic nationalism systematically drives Israel to solve its national problems by military means, based on the idea that the homeland is sacred and the territory is indivisible. When Israelis opposed to this ideology brought about change during a period that led to the Oslo Accords in the 1990s, cultural and political forces, reinforced by religious and messianic elements, prevented the implementation of the agreements, which brought violence back in the form of new wars. War over Peace is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the role of ethnic nationalism and militarism in Israel as well as throughout the world.
A 20th Century Chronology.
The end of the British mandate in Palestine heralded the birth of the new state of Israel. It also marked the end of one of the most tumultuous and momentous chapters in Israeli history. But the new state, born into a hostile environment and struggling with the manifold demands of sovereignty, would have to face many post-Independence challenges to its existence, not least in the form of armed conflict and confrontation with its Arab neighbours. This volume examines the conflicts that from the 1948 until the 1967 Six Day War came to define the Israeli struggle for existence.
"The Israel-Palestine conflict is one of the most polarizing and long-lived confrontations in the world. Tearing communities apart in Israel and Occupied Palestine, with repercussions across the globe, Israel's "temporary" occupation turns a half century old in 2017. This timely and provocative book offers a background history and context for general readers and covers the major turning points of the conflict. Expertly detailing the political, diplomatic, and legal dimensions of the struggle, Gershon Shafir examines the effect of the colonization of occupied territories on Israel's democracy and offers compelling reasons and possibilities for ending the occupation now."--Provided by publisher.
The historical issue that concerns us, is the origins, causes and effects of the two larger conflagrations that has undergone the humanity, namely, the so-called First World War and the so-called Second World War, that was thrust upon in the world and set fire to Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and the rest of the world. America, explicitly the United States, has not felt physical destruction of their cities, nor was the scene of the battle fields in both wars, but it intervened decisively in his development with definite affectations in their final. The balance of power both in the first war, and with greater influence in the second, inclined to consummate the defeat of Germany on both occasions. Without the competition from the United States of North America, whose enormous industrial and military capability was put to the service of the coalition of 49 countries against Germany, and in its highest percentage in support of the Soviet Russia (the USSR!), the "triumph" in the second great world war have never been possible. But, ¿the "triumph" of whom? All of this has its causes, its explanation and its consequences. It is difficult to conceive the world today without taking into account the terrible event that was called "Second world war" (1939-1945) and almost impossible to understand this without thoroughly studying the origins of the "first world war" (1914-1918). And, in both cases, their protagonists. Two global conflagrations which left more than a hundred million dead cannot be taken lightly. You have to analyze them, study them and draw conclusions that can make us understand them, to know their origins, their causes and effects; and that all this may have value for the future. An uncertain future, since the reality is that the first great world war began in 1914, and the war's end did not bring an end in 1918; the surrender and defeat of Germany was only a waiting compass that gave rise to the great Second World War; and, once again, unconditional accountability of Germany and Japan imposed by "Allies" in 1945, was not ended with all wars, on the other hand, gave rise to the "cold war", the war in Korea, the Viet Nam war, Egyptians and Arab States against the imposition of Israel for appropriating of Palestine to form his "Jewish State"; the Revolutionary War of Cuba, that turned this country into a satellite communist dictatorship of the USSR; in Afghanistan, which was conceived against Iraq in order to take control of its oil; the current massacre committed by Israel against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the last piece of land that is left to the Palestinians; the current war against Islam. THIS WAR IS NOT FINISHED. IT HAS LASTED FOR ONE HUNDRED YEARS: 1914 TO 2014. This is "The one hundred years war". And there are no indications that is going to end, until certain plans are met. Jews have an unparalleled opportunity to throw the world a eulogy of his achievements, and tell the world: "see all what the Jewish wit can be do, everything what can be achieved for the benefit of a village, when it is given wide freedom to manifest itself; When can show their strength of will and his desire without boundaries in pursuit of a goal". We thus reach the frightening conclusion that the Messianic New World Order is about to arrive. It all begins in Syria. The last remnants of Palestine that prevent the establishment of the great Israel kingdom have its days numbered. The fate of mankind hangs by a thread, and everything will depend on what happens in the near future in East Jerusalem. ¡The New World Order is here!

By revisiting the past hundred years of shared Palestinian and Jewish-Israeli history, Baruch Kimmerling reveals surprising relations of influence between a stateless indigenous society and the settler-immigrants who would later form the state of Israel. Shattering our assumptions about these two seemingly irreconcilable cultures, Kimmerling composes a sophisticated portrait of one side's behavior and characteristics and the way in which they irrevocably shaped those of the other. Kimmerling focuses on the clashes, tensions, and complementarities that link Jewish, Palestinian, and Israeli identities. He explores the phenomena of reciprocal relationships between Jewish and Arab communities in mandatory Palestine, relations between state and society in Israel, patterns of militarism, the problems of jurisdiction in an immigrant-settler society, and the ongoing struggle of Israel to achieve legitimacy as both a Jewish and a democratic state. By merging Israeli and Jewish studies with a vast body of scholarship on Palestinians and the Middle East, Kimmerling introduces a unique conceptual framework for analyzing the cultural, political, and material overlap of both societies. A must read for those concerned with Israel and the relations between Jews and Arabs, Clash of Identities is a provocative exploration of the ever-evolving, always-contending identities available to Israelis and Palestinians and the fascinating contexts in which they take form.
"From 1337 to 1453 England repeatedly invaded France on the pretext that her kings had a right to the French throne. Though it was a small, poor country, England for most of those "hundred years" won the battles, sacked the towns and castles, and dominated the war. The protagonists of the Hundred Years War are among the most colorful in European history: Edward III, the Black Prince; Henry V, who was later immortalized by Shakespeare; the splendid but inept John II, who died a prisoner in London; Charles V, who very nearly overcame England; and the enigmatic Charles VII, who at last drove the English out. Desmond Seward's critically-acclaimed account of the Hundred Years War brings to life all of the intrigue, beauty, and royal to-the-death-fighting of that legendary century-long conflict." (1999 ed.).
