Catastrophe Remembered by Nur Masalha
Book DescriptionThe 1948 Palestine War is known to Israelis as 'the War of Independence'. But for Palestinians, the war is forever the Nakba, the 'catastrophe'. The war led to the creation of the State of Israel and the destruction of much of Palestininan society by the Zionist forces. For all Palestinians, the Nakba has become central to history, memory and identity. This book focuses on Palestinian internal refugees in Israel and internally displaced Palestinians across the Green LIne. It uses oral history and interviews to examine Palestinian identity and memory, indigenous rights, international protection, the 'right of return', and a just solution in Palestine/Israel. Contributors include several distinguished authors and scholars such as William Dalrymple, Prof. Naseer Aruri, Dr. Ilan Pappe, Prof. Isma'il Abu Sa'ad and Dr. Nur Masalha.

Books By Author Nur Masalha
Zionist Bible, Hardback (May 2013)
The support of a Jewish nation state in the Land of Israel is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This book considers the role the Bible has had to play in justifying oppression and colonialism in Palestine.
Palestine Nakba, Paperback (January 2012)
Explores ways of remembering and commemorating the Nakba, dealing with the issue within the context of Palestinian oral history, 'social history from below', narratives of memory and the formation of collective identity.
Bible and Zionism, Paperback (August 2007)» View all books by Nur Masalha
Investigates the Biblical justification for Zionism and charts the historical rise of Zionism since its 19th century roots. Providing a contribution to the argument for a single democratic and secular Israeli state, this book shows how the biblical language of 'chosen people' and 'promised land' is used to justify ethnic division and violence.
