9781849041829: Global Palestine.

Global Palestine provides unique perspective on one of the world's most enduring political controversies--the nature and extent of the rights owed to Palestinians-- by exploring a deceptively simple question: what does PalestineA" mean outside of local arenas? How does the idea of Palestine power larger social and political developments? To construct his answer, John Collins assumes three overlapping premises: that contemporary Palestine is the site of an ongoing project of settler colonization; that Palestine's global importance is increasing in inverse proportion to the amount of territory actually controlled by Palestinians, as the growing movement of international solidarity indicates; and that the supposedly local struggle over Palestinian rights in fact intimately reflects four global processes shaping the conditions in which we live--colonization, securitization, acceleration, and occupation--and is therefore intricately connected to them. Collins finds these processes have not only influenced the idea and physical space of Palestine, but they have also become profoundly altered through their interaction with theoretical conceptions of Palestine across the globe. This outcome reflects an important emerging trend in global conditions, which are brought into sharp relief by Collins's expert analysis. His approach enables a fresh en- counter with the new politics of violence, resistance, and solidarity springing from what Walter Benjamin once called the tradition of the oppressed.A"

Review:

'Global Palestine tackles an obvious but understudied question: why is Palestine so internationally significant? The answers provided herein blend sharp analysis of global politics, deep knowledge of local struggles and transnational solidarity movements, and clear understanding of the ways in which the Israeli state wield its power at home and abroad.' - Lisa Hajjar, Associate Professor of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara 'Global Palestine offers a brilliant reading of the Palestine question, helping us to more fully understand both the operation of a necropolitical regime of surveillance, interdiction and control and a spirited and increasingly globalised resistance to it. Finding inspiration in the continuing Palestinian struggle for justice, this book is a fine example of intellectual precision and political commitment.' - Saree Makdisi, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, UCLA, and author of Palestine Inside Out: An Everyday Occupation.
