Summary:"This book critically assesses a series of complex and topical debates helping readers make sense of some of the most foundational and contemporary ideas around the politics of the Israeli-Palestinian relationship. Each chapter considers one topic, represented by two or three essays offered in conversation with one another. Together, these essays advance different perspectives; in some cases they are complementary and in others they are oppositional. Topics include scholarly and activist interpretations of communal narratives, assessing the concept of self-determination for Jewish Israelis and Palestinians, addressing the debate over settler-colonialism as an appropriate framework for interpreting the history of Israel/Palestine, an analysis of international law and related issues, questions surrounding Palestinian and Jewish refugees and the impact of displacement, the debate over the apartheid label, the phenomenon of intersectionality, including the dynamics of allies and alliances, and a close look at BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) as a set of tactics. Through these four foundational and contemporary topics, readers will be challenged to examine critically the strengths and weaknesses of each position in light of scholarly debates rooted in social justice, and helped to gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between Israelis and Palestinians in order to see a path forward--towards justice for all."--
