The Idea of Israel: Ilan Pappé
A major new history of Zionism and Israel, by Ilan Pappé, renowned author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
Since its foundation in 1948, Israel has drawn on Zionism to provide a sense of self and political direction. In this groundbreaking new work, Ilan Pappé looks at the continued role of Zionist ideology in the creation of Israel. Join him as he discusses the way Zionism operates outside of the government and military in areas such as the country’s education system, media, and cinema, and the uses that are made of the Holocaust in supporting the state’s ideological structure.
Pappé has been attacked and received death threats since his work exposed the truth about how Palestinians have been treated, and the gruesome structure that links the production of knowledge to the exercise of power. The Idea of Israel is a powerful and urgent intervention in the war of ideas concerning the past, and the future, of the Palestinian–Israeli conflict.
