Product Description

Review

"De Haan's Orientalism did not provide a way out for the Jews of Palestine since, among other things, it made no allowance for the Arabs' legitimate aspirations for independence from the British. But Zionist Occidentalism has not provided a way out either. Rather than siding with the East or the West, perhaps the real aim should be to rise above both."--The Nation

Excellent book! 16 Dec. 2004
By Chris Macdonald Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book for my dissertation lit review and I loved it! It helps you understand how Jews have been seen as both occidental and oriental. Given that Jews historically have played this "middle position" between the oppressed and the ruling classes, it is not surprising that Jews have been "both/and."
