New edition of the hugely influential exploration of the infrastructure and architecture of Israel’s colonial occupation

From the tunnels of Gaza to the militarized airspace of the Occupied Territories, Eyal Weizman unravels Israel’s mechanisms of control and its transformation of Palestinian towns, villages and roads into an artifice where all natural and built features serve military ends. Weizman traces the development of this strategy, from the influence of archaeology on urban planning, Ariel Sharon’s reconceptualization of military defence during the 1973 war, through the planning and architecture of the settlements, to the contemporary Israeli discourse and practice of urban warfare and airborne targeted assassinations.


Hollow Land lays bare the political system at the heart of this complex and terrifying project of late-modern colonial occupation.

Reviews

  • The most astonishing book on architecture that I have read in years.

    Edwin HeathcoteFinancial Times
  • A masterpiece of political analysis.

    James RonThe Nation
  • Eyal Weizman has taken Edward Said’s thesis to a new level, generating extraordinary, and at times surreally uncomfortable, conclusions...Weizman’s book is of salutary interest.
