The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

by Ilan Pappe
£9.99   paperback  Oneworld (2009)

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Ilan Pappe Since the Holocaust, it has been almost impossible to hide large-scale crimes against humanity. In our communicative world few modern catastrophes are concealed from the public eye. And yet, Ilan Pappe unveils, one such crime has been erased from the global public memory: the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948. The pervasive denial of the Nakbah, as Palestinians call the catastrophe that befell them, is still a mystery today. But why is it denied, and by whom?
 
The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine offers an investigation of this mystery, and Pappe puts forward a ground-breaking – if controversial – interpretation of the relationship of Nakbah to the Palestine-Israeli conflict, naming Nakbah as the conflict’s very origin. Portraying Israeli-Palestine relations in a revolutionary new light, this book is guaranteed to spark fierce debate throughout the world.

"Ilan Pappe is Israel's bravest, most principled, most incisive historian.” "
(John Pilger – author, journalist, and filmmaker )
"Ground breaking research into a well kept Israeli secret. A classic of historical scholarship on a taboo subject by one of Israel's foremost New Historians"
(Ghada Karmi – Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter)
