Palestine. The overcoming of state nationalism

, by  Roger Heacock

In a critical and committed book, several researchers, most of them Palestinians, question the desire to create a state, which has been at the heart of Palestinian political strategy for a century. By questioning this state nationalism and the renunciations it has provoked, they open up new avenues for the future of Palestine.

Rethinking Statehood in Palestine: Self-Determination and Decolonization Beyond Partition has just been published in the United States, with mostly Palestinian authors. The book offers critical, innovative and convincing views on the Israeli-Palestinian problem. These are fascinating works that make a change from France, where researchers working on the analysis of structural racism in the West and on South Mediterranean issues are excommunicated as "islamo-leftists".
