Synopsis:

From Mandate Palestine to refugee camps in Jordan today, generations of Palestinians have been affected by the reach of the state into their everyday lives. Here, Elise Young offers an analysis of the politics of state building in the Middle East, viewed through the lens of health. Young argues that gendered, raced, and classed constructions of health, as evidenced in malaria eradication campaigns and the regularization of midwifery, are central to such state building processes. She draws on archival documents to uncover British medical administration and American involvement during the Mandate, and in-depth oral histories of Palestinian women refugees in Jordan. Making a powerful case for an alternative historiography of the region, this book will be invaluable for all those interested in Middle East history and politics, nationalism, gender, public health, and refugees.

About the Author:

Elise G. Young is Professor in the History Department at Westfield State College, Massachusetts. A Middle East historian, who has conducted research in Palestine, Israel, and Jordan, she has written extensively on women and modern nation state building in these regions, and is the author of Keepers of the History: Women and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (1992). She is the founder and director of The Global Women's History Project and of Africa Alive, a community-based African Studies program linking public and private education, both based at Westfield State College.
