Territorial borders, identity borders, and many other kinds of social and cultural borders are constantly questioned in Israel-Palestine. Reapproaching Borders: New Perspectives on the Study of Israel-Palestine explores the concept of borders, how they are imagined and actualized in this deeply contested land. The book focuses on the 'implicate relations' between Palestinian Arabs and Jews, providing new insights into the origins and dynamics of the conflicts between them. Emphasizing the history of the non-elite members of both communities, the book sees the relations between Jews and Palestinian Arabs as embedded and reflected in areas of daily living, such as in the spheres of architecture, commerce, health sexuality, and the courts. Using the voices of the new generation of scholars, Reapproaching Borders demonstrates the continued saliency of older themes such as ownership and rights to the land, but as they intersect with the newer areas of inquiry, such as sexual identity politics and spatial relations.

Review:

This collection brings together exciting new work by a group of innovative younger scholars who are at the cutting edge of research on the modern history of Palestine, Israel and Zionism. Their explorations of how territorial and ethnic as well as intellectual boundaries in a variety of domains have been constructed and maintained―but also frequently crossed―help open up promising new ways of thinking about Arab-Jewish relations and interactions. (Zachary Lockman, Professor of Modern Middle East history, New York University)

An intreguing reading of the memoirs of an Arabic-speaking Jewish businessman....This book should be of interest to anyone interested in the history and politics of Israel-Palestine, as well as broader audiences concerned with sociology of law and medicine, space, architecture and conflict, states, and gender. (Journal of Palestine Studies)

This is an exciting cross-disciplinary look at the intersecting Israeli-Palestinian communities over time. The organizing metaphor of shifting and porous borders is an excellent way to unify this new research. (Michelle Mart, associate professor of history, Pennsylvania State University)
