Summary
"This unique book provides a critical perspective on identity to question how Israeli Jews manage and manifest their concern for the Palestinian Other, eschewing presenting identities as concrete and, rather, examining their creation through discourse. Considering the construction of Israeli Jewish national identity in the context of a state that has institutionalized a ressentiment discourse, this book examines how alternative discourses try, and sometimes fail, to re-imagine Israeli Jewish national identity in non-oppressive forms. It combines a rigorous theoretical analysis of nationalism and an engaging examination of the identifications and contradictions of eleven Israeli Jewish individuals. Featuring, among others, high profile journalist Gideon Levy, veteran maverick Uri Davis and literary novelist Dorit Rabinyan, Attwell provides a revealing insight into national identity, political dissent, conflict and resistance"--
