Summary

CHOICE 2001 Outstanding Academic Book

Examines the difficulties of Palestinian-Arab political life in Israel.

As'ad Ghanem provides a comprehensive description of the political development of the Palestinian-Arab minority in Israel and also discusses their social, cultural, and economic experiences. Covering two main aspects of politics--the different manifestations of politics and the dilemmas created by these politics--he presents the predicament of the Palestinian-Arab minority in Israel, which derives from the ethnic character of the State of Israel and their isolation from other Palestinians, and proposes the Israeli-Palestinian bi-national state as a suitable resolution not only for this problem but also for the main Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

"A thorough treatment of the various political currents in the Israeli-Arab sector. Ghanem combines documentary evidence and personal interviews to provide insight into the complex working of core political movements among the Arab minority in Israel." -- Elia Zureik, author of The Palestinians in Israel: A Study in Internal Colonialism

"A solid and important work that presents a more thorough analysis of the politics of this Palestinian-Arab community than any of the other comparable studies." -- Donna Robinson Divine, author of Politics and Society in Ottoman Palestine: The Arab Struggle for Survival and Power

As'ad Ghanem is Lecturer and Researcher at the University of Haifa's Department of Political Science and the Peace Research Institute in Givat Haviva. He is also Codirector of the Sikkuy Association.
