Reviews

  • Ilan Pappe is Israel’s bravest, most principled, most incisive historian.

    John Pilger
  • One of the most prominent Israeli political dissidents living in exile … He is also one of the few Israeli students of the conflict who write about the Palestinian side with real knowledge and empathy.

    Avi ShlaimGuardian
  • Along with Edward Said, Ilan Pappe is the most eloquent writer of Palestinian history.
