Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great and impartial review of history 1 septembre 2014
Par Formula1fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Easy to read, it takes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from a succinct, but clear historical point of view. The authors opinion are impartial and direct, criticizing both parties and many orders for their inability to reach a common ground, and stating that is unlikely to happen. I enjoyed the historical facts that justify the roots of the conflict. Worth reading

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Professor Gelvin's book is phenomenal. 6 juin 2014
Par A. F. YOU - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I am a student at UCLA majoring in History. Last summer, I had an opportunity to visit Israel/Palestine and read this as preparation. James Gelvin's book is the most objective and factually based account that I have encountered as a student and someone who visited the region. Great for anyone seeking to understand the conflict or even enhance their understanding of it. Truly a great text and enjoyable read with good humor. Highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An introduction using an excellent deconstructionist historiographic approach 18 décembre 2014
Par NS de l'Empire colonial français - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Few contemporary political topics evoke as much emotionally-charged, reactionary responses as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. That is counterintuitive for several reasons. First, its casualty count has been relatively light compared to other conflicts within and outside the region over the fixed post-1948 timeframe. Second, its geographic range is limited - a long fight over a state roughly the size of New Jersey.

Those two reasons should hint external factors in pressure pointing those charged reactions. First, defenders of Israel are both very focal and organized. Second, contemporary politics (the left in particular) narrate that the losers of history carry moral right regardless of the means at which ends are attained with respect to political violence. In other words, Jews – victims of the Holocaust – take on the role of colonizer in a post-1945 world where "colonialism" becomes a dirty word at the expense of the victimized Palestinians, whose most extreme defenders have equally resorted toward violence to achieve political ends. Two consequents result: cognitive dissonance on the left, and ethnic and theological polemics from both sides defending their respective nationalistic myths.

Dr. Gelvin's raison d'être is found in this confusion. Taking a deconstructionist approach that has the most epistemic certainty (see the paragraph below), he sees the conflict for what it is as two competing nationalisms. In doing that, Gelvin puts historic Zionism in context of European nationalist logic. Its strategic purpose is not so obvious: It contains the counterproductive rhetoric from both defenders of Israel and its anti-Semitic detractors. That is accomplished by noting that Zionism is neither distinct nor unique from both European colonialization practices and nationalist constructs. Meanwhile, Gelvin places Palestinian identity in context where – like the Dreyfus Affair was for selected intellectuals of European Jewry – the 2nd and 3rd Jewish immigration waves that excluded Palestinians from Jewish economic life, as well as Jewish aggression during the 1930s Great Revolt, and general lack of surrounding leadership in light of the Ottoman Empire's dismemberment, pressure pointed a nationalist identity of their own. Thus, one could construct parallel, time-independent phases of both Jewish and Palestinian nationalisms that are not only a mirror image of each other but a mirror image of all nationalisms that have sprung since the age of European Romanticism of preceding generations!

(I feel Dr. Gelvin's deconstruction has the greatest historical epistemic certainty. If one rightly assumes that states behave "rationally" in self-interest, despite the ambiguity of rationality, and if one assumes states have a logic system that I call "the frame of reference" that constitutes its rationality, then we can derive greater meaning of these historic events. Further, we can identify short- and long-term pressure points, e.g. the 2nd and 3rd immigration waves into historic Palestine, that give historic state systems a degree of flexibility, i.e. chaos, within a seemingly fixed, deterministic system. This approach leaves little room for interpretation or narration, except for archival access; therefore, its epistemic certainty has increased substantially! Further, one is able to isolate anomalous singularities, such as Yassar Arafat's stumbling-and-fumbling diplomacy!)

Because of Dr. Gelvin's excellent methodology, we have two results. First, we can properly diagnose the Israeli-Palestinian issue. That allows one to isolate the reactionaries of both Zionism and anti-Zionism currents. Second, we have a meta-political schema – an analysis removed from a nationalist assumption – that deracinates the blowhards whether they be the emotional and uninvolved commentators, fear-mongerers, peaceniks, and other assorted clowns. Any idiot can make moral judgments or write simplistic, grand narratives... It takes a true historian to evaluate the system as it is without assuming the system's validity.

From a non-specialist's perspective, I enjoyed reading this book. (I have my own grudges in historical writing, so it's refreshing to step out of one's own bubble every now and then.) Dr. Gelvin's logic was so rigid and his accounting for the human variance of both actors squabbling over historic Palestine resulted in adrenaline surges that led to my boking like a chicken and vrooming in airplane motions whilst making artillery sounds...in a coffee shop, much less.

As I always say, a false historical frame of reference gives a false conclusion of historical context. Gelvin's work breaks the political logic down to its barest constituent properties, leading to an appreciable understanding of a perpetual conflict that, in short, has smaller chances of resolution since both sides have the same logic system over the same territory (at least in rhetoric, not in practice) such that the logic necessitates a power relationship of one side over the other (which Israel, alas, has).
