IPS NEW BOOK PRE-SALE

In the Land of My Birth recounts the coming of age of a blind Palestinian boy of modest milieu during the turbulent years leading up to the fall of Palestine in 1948.

Journal of Palestine Studies, Summer 2017

The Journal is proud to present a feature by Sahar Francis on Palestinian women prisoners in Israeli jails. Her report is based on extensive interviews with former prisoners, and on her work at the head of an organization dedicated to the defense of prisoners’ rights. In tandem, managing editor Nehad Khader writes on former prisoner and outspoken human-rights activist Rasmea Odeh. Odeh’s conviction in Israel decades ago on terrorism charges was secured by a confession obtained after she was tortured and raped, and her recently ordered deportation from the United States (where she resides) was decreed by a federal court that did not allow these facts to be considered.

The latest Journal of Palestine Studies (# 176) features as its free article, "The Two-State Model and Israeli Constitutionalism: Impact on the Palestinian Citizens of Israel" by Mazen Masri, a lecturer in law at the City Law School, City University London. Masri argues that the two-state solution would undermine the legal standing of Palestinian citizens of Israel (PCI) as it would reinforce the definition of Israel as a Jewish state.

Simultaneously, the Palestinian people are today more isolated and fragmented than at any point since their initial dispossession and dispersal in 1948.
