Summary
"Thinking Palestine brings together an inter-disciplinary group of Palestinian, Israeli, American, British and Irish scholars who theorize 'the question of Palestine'. Critically committed to supporting the Palestinian quest for self-determination, they present new theoretical ways of thinking about Palestine. These include the 'Palestinization' of ethnic and racial conflicts, the theorization of Palestine as camp, ghetto and prison, the tourist/activist gaze, the role of gendered resistance, the centrality of the memory of the 1948 Nakba (catastrophe) to the contemporary understanding of the conflict, and the historic roots of the contemporary discourse on Palestine. The book offers a novel examination of how the Palestinian experience of being governed under what Giorgio Agamben names a 'state of exception' may be theorized as paradigmatic for new forms of global governance. An indispensable read for any serious scholar."--Jacket
