genesis of Israeli policies of population management surveillance and political control towards the Palestinian minority Ahmad H Sa di Widely regarded as expert in techniques of surveillance and political control Israel has been successful in controlling a native population for a long time Despite tremendous challenges it has maintained a tight grip over a large Palestinian population in the territories it occupied in the 1967 war Moreover it has effectively contained the Palestinian minority inside its 1948 borders Although members of the latter group were granted Israeli citizenship various policies have blocked them from challenging the state s Jewish identity Israel s continued administration of a large Palestinian population into the twenty first century represents a serious challenge for scholars and theorists of colonial forms of political control Relying on hitherto unpublished archival material this book traces the genesis of Israeli policies and tactics of population management surveillance and political control towards the Palestinians It identifies the principal architects of these strategies discusses their approaches summarises their discussions and traces the implementations of these policies and their impact on the everyday lives of Palestinians For more information and to purchase a copy of the book please click here The Genealogical Science THE SEARCH FOR JEWISH ORIGINS AND THE POLITICS OF EPISTEMOLOGY NADIA ABU EL HAJ The Genealogical Science analyzes the scientific work and social implications of the flourishing field of genetic history A biological discipline that relies on genetic data in order to reconstruct the geographic origins of contemporary populations their histories of migration and genealogical connections to other present day groups this historical science is garnering ever more credibility and social reach in large part due to a growing industry in ancestry testing In this book Nadia Abu El Haj examines genetic history s working assumptions about culture and nature identity and biology and the individual and the collective Through the example of the study of Jewish origins she explores novel cultural and political practices that are emerging as genetic history s claims and facts circulate in the public domain and illustrates how this historical science is intrinsically entangled with cultural imaginations and political commitments Chronicling late nineteenth to mid twentieth century understandings of race nature and culture she identifies continuities and shifts in scientific claims institutional contexts and political worlds in order to show how the meanings of biological difference have changed over time In so doing she gives an account of how and why it is that genetic history is so socially felicitous today and elucidates the range of understandings of the self individual and collective this scientific field is making possible More specifically through her focus on the history of projects of Jewish self fashioning that have taken place on the terrain of the biological sciences The Genealogical Science analyzes genetic history as the latest iteration of a cultural and political practice now over a century old For more information and to purchase a copy of the book please click here Brokers of Deceit How the U S Has Undermined Peace in the Middle East Rashid Khalidi For more than seven decades the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian people has raged on with no end in sight and for much of that time the United States has been involved as a mediator in the conflict Khalidi zeroes in on the United States s role as the purported impartial broker in this failed peace process Khalidi closely analyzes three historical moments that illuminate how the United States involvement has in fact thwarted progress toward peace between Israel and Palestine The first moment he investigates is the Reagan Plan of 1982 when Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin refused to accept the Reagan administration s proposal to reframe the Camp David Accords more impartially The second moment covers the period after the Madrid Peace Conference from 1991 to 1993 during which negotiations between Israel and Palestine were brokered by the United States until the signing of the secretly negotiated Oslo accords Finally Khalidi takes on President Barack Obama s retreat from plans to insist on halting the settlements in the West Bank For more information and to purchase a copy of the book please click here Indigenous In Justice Human Rights Law and Bedouin Arabs in

    s entire magnificent oeuvre in his new film Recollection Kamal Aljafari has tapped on a disquieting vision of the ruins and debris in material and memorial pushing as he does his previous work forward by leaps and bounds The significance of this work is manifold achieving two contradictory tasks in particular dismounting the omniscient camera and staging the relic By allowing the memory to stage and announce itself an enduring philosophical task made essential as early as in Walter Benjamin s prophetic turn to relics and ruins in his theory of allegory Aljafari wonders who is watching who is watching the watcher and by what authority The damning question Quis custodiet ipsos custodies is here staged with astonishing confidence and ease with the threadbare power of a visionary artist taking the instrumentality of his own art to task The result is uncanny you feel you have been there but where when how and now what Hamid Dabashi Professor Dabashi is a renowned film expert and the founder of Dreams of a Nation a Palestinian Film Project which is dedicated to preserving and safeguarding Palestinian cinema Dabashi has organized Palestinian film festivals both in Palestine
