Summary
This book is a book against--against those who love to rush to the aid of the victors, against the widespread and racist contempt for Arabs, and against the celebration of modern civilization and technology that Israel embodies. It is also the book in which the author sought to clarify for himself his conflicted identity as an Italian Jew. It combines polemic and autobiography with narrative and criticism in a reflection on politics, identity, and truthfulness in the period after the Six Day War of 1967. This meditation against power is published alongside Fortini/Cani, a film by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, drawn from Fortini's essay. The film includes scenes of the author reading excerpts from his book. --
