Decisively debunking the myth that the Palestinian population left of their own accord in the course of this war, Ilan Pappe offers impressive archival evidence to demonstrate that, from its very inception, a central plank in Israel's founding ideology was the forcible removal of the indigenous population. This book is indispensable for anyone interested in the Middle East.
In this controversial new book, prominent Israeli historian Pappe revisits the formative period of the State of Israel. Between 1947 and 1949, over 400 Palestinian villages were deliberately destroyed, and a million people were expelled from their homes. For anyone interested in the conflict in the Middle East. 'Israel's bravest historian' John Pilger
