'The book should be read closely by serious pro-Palestinian activists wishing to sharpen their conceptual tools in the ceaseless battle against Zionist propaganda.' Electronic Intifada, August 2008 'This book presents us with sharp critical thinking about everything from the applicability of Agamben's concept of the "state of exception" or Foucault's theory of modern "biopower" to Israel's control over Palestinians in prisons, camps, and ghettoes, to the specific dynamics of racialization, colonial violence against, and appropriation of Palestinians, even by the well-meaning. Both theorizing and chronicling the varied forms of Israeli power, these provocative essays are grounded in details that can still shock.' Lila Abu-Lughod, Columbia University 'This timely volume provides a fresh epistemological framework to think Palestine in the context of the Israeli colonial occupation of its territories as well as of its dispersed populations. It shifts the center of gravity from the temporal dimension of 'state of exception' to its spatial as well as its racializing features. The book makes an important critical contribution to political theory and deserves to be read by anyone concerned with the question of Palestine.' Yehouda Shenhav, Tel-Aviv University
