Struggle and Survival in Palestine

from the manufacturer

Too often, the study of IsraelPalestine has focused on elite actors and major events. Struggle and Survival in PalestineIsrael takes advantage of new sources about everyday life and the texture of changes on the ground to put more than two dozen human faces on the past and present of the region. With contributions from a leading cast of scholars across disciplines, the stories here are drawn from a variety of sources, from stories passed down through generations to family archives, interviews, and published memoirs. As these personal narratives are transformed into social biographies, they explore how the protagonists were embedded in but also empowered by their social and historical contexts. This wide-ranging and accessible volume brings a human dimension to a conflict-ridden history, emphasizing human agency, introducing marginal voices alongside more well-known ones, defying typical definitions of Israelis and Palestinians, and, ultimately, redefining how we understand both struggle and survival in a troubled region.
