Product Description

Review

A highly commendable effort to throw light on a fraught subject. (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)

This book takes on the most complex arenas of injustice and contested history, and renders them accessible, lucid, and morally compelling. (Karma Nabulsi, University of Oxford)

An excellent guide for understanding the magnitude of the crimes committed against the Palestinians and the nature of their present suffering and oppression. (Ilan Pappe, author of Out of the Frame)

An essential guide for understanding Israeli apartheid - both the history, and the day to day reality. (Eyal Weizman, author of Hollow Land (2007))

'this little book is an invaluable tool' (Raymond Deane, The Electronic Intifada)

'White’s thesis is well researched, well argued and copiously referenced' (Susan de Muth, The Palestine Chronicle)

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Richard Kuper on 5 Jun. 2015
Format: Paperback
Here's a review I did for Red Pepper. I'm posting it in response to the eight, separate one-star reviews posted in just 48 hours!

This book first appeared in 2009 and was excoriated by supporters of the Zionist project. It was a good book then and, revised and updated, it is even better now.
It does not claim to be a comprehensive history of the conflict. Israeli apartheid is not the same as South African apartheid, and Ben White is fully aware of this. If South Africa is the model, there are important differences. In South Africa the white economy was dependent on cheap, black labour; in Israel the dominant Zionist project has always wanted to wish the indigenous, Palestinian population away.
But White starts from international attempts to specify a crime of apartheid, dating back to 1973, and is clear that the comparison with South Africa will be “useful in so far as it sheds light… on a political system that is based on structural racism, separation and dominance”. (14)
Part I gives the briefest account of events leading up to the catastrophe of 1947-49; Part 2 a lengthier account of how discrimination works both within green-line Israel and in the occupied territories.
The core of green-line apartheid is the exclusionary land regime, the story of how Jewish Israelis, from owning around 7% of the land when the state of Israel was declared, now own or control 93%; and how land development and land-use planning is systematically deployed against the needs of Palestinian citizens. The expropriation continues today, particularly of Bedouin lands in the Naqab.

Format: Paperback
Brilliant and perceptive introduction to the reality of the situation on the ground. Apartheid is a fitting description, and this book explains in detail how and why. A concept that has been widespread among Palestinians, activists and academics is now establishing firm roots in mainstream discourse, and its because of great books like this.

this is a very good book of Izrael's inhuman treatment of the palestinian people,no regard for human rights or internationl law.
Buy this book and find out what is really going on.Ignore the pro Izraeli propaganda,read the facts and be informed
The anti-semitism card is wearing thin.You cannot ignore facts forever.

A well research book and a must read for anyone who is interested in the question of whether modern Israel is an Apartheid state or not.

16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Kabir Hussain on 5 Jun. 2015
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent work by Ben White. he backs up all of his arguments with facts and clear references. Ideal for both beginners and those who are already well versed on this matter.

On a side note, there appears to be a slew of one star reviews for this book. You can be guaranteed that not a single one of them will have read a word of the book. Zionists are finding it to be a difficult time with the rise and success of BDS, they are resorting to petty tactics such as posting false reviews of any book that is critical of Israeli policy, regardless of the fact that such books are backed up by intellectual analysis, facts and references. And of course, the number one tactic is to smear the authors as being anti-semitic - an accusation that is as groundless as their opinions on this book.

Pick this book up and judge for yourselves, you won't regret it.

Format: Paperback
This is a pretty great primer. Love the criticisms in the many poor reviews, how they conflate vital exposure of Israeli apartheid with antisemitism and only boost this publications credibility. Classic.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Goddess of Blah Book Reviews on 5 Jun. 2015
Format: Paperback
A straight forward guide that goes from the history to the present day and the tactics used to not only justify but "cleanse" the crimes committed against the Palestinian people.

An interesting book that reveals how cleverly a group of powerful individual and then State used it's PR machine to deflect criticism and evolved it's attack against another set of people by dehumanising them.

It's very true about those who justify violence and racism by using the "other Arab states are worse" argument.
