1948 and After: Israel and the Palestinians

£24.99

Product description

Published in 1990 by Clarendon Press.
Includes a preface contextualising the essays found in the book, a list of the b&w maps found throughout the book and a helpful list of abbreviations. Footnotes found throughout the book. The book also contains a select bibliography listing primary Sources, interviews conducted, published primary sources, and selected secondary works and a detailed index.

In this collection of essays, Benny Morris examines and elucidates aspects of the Arab exodus from Palestine in 1948, focusing on Israeli decision-making and the causes of mass exile.
He deals with the transfer of Majdal's (Ashkelon's) Arabs to Gaza in 1950 and the initial absorption of the Palestinian refugees in the Arab host countries in 1948-9, and looks at why a number of Arab villages in key areas of Israel along the highways linking Tel Aviv with Jerusalem and Haifa did not go into exile voluntarily and were left in place by the Israeli authorities.
He examines the attitudes towards the Palestinian Arabs, as they evolved during the 1948 war, of Israel's two main parties, Mapai and Mapam; how the battle for the harvest of 1948 affected the exodus; how the Israel Defence Forces' Intelligence Service analysed the Arab exodus; and how Yosef Weitz, a Jewish National Fund official, and the two 'Transfer Committees' he chaired, helped promote the Palestinian exodus during 1948-9.
In his introduction Dr Morris examines past and present Israeli historiography, analysing the shift from the 'old' official Israeli histories to the 'new history' of the 1980s. He identifies the major points of controversy between the two approaches, and the direction in which Israeli historiography is now moving.

Benny Morris is a former diplomatic correspondent of "The Jerusalem Post". He has also written "The Birth of the Palestine Refugee Problem 1947-49" (1988) and is regarded as a leading figure among the "new" historians in Israel.

In very good condition save for fading on the spine and a tear caused by shelf wear on the top edge of the spine of the dust jacket. There is a stamp on the front end paper indicating this was a shelf copy in an academic institution. Tight binding and clean pages throughout.
