Palestine, Israel, and U.S. Empire is an essential book for the current moment. Taking a firm anti-Zionist perspective on the history of Palestine and Israel, it traces the movements of resistance from British colonialism to the fight back in Gaza and the West Bank today.
From the division of the Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the founding of Israel and its role as a watchdog for US interests, to present day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution—this narrative is firmly rooted in the politics of Palestinian liberation. Here is a necessary contribution to the heroic efforts of the Palestinian people to achieve justice in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. This book contains a complete index and a timeline of developments in the history of Palestine.
