Renowned Israeli historian Ilan Pappe's groundbreaking book revisits the formation of the State of Israel. Between 1947 and 1949, over 400 Palestinian villages were deliberately destroyed, civilians were massacred, and around a million men, women, and children were expelled from their homes at gunpoint.

Denied for almost six decades, had it happened today it could only have been called 'ethnic cleansing.' Decisively debunking the myth that the Palestinian population left of their own accord in the course of this war, Ilan Pappe offers impressive archival evidence to demonstrate that, from its very inception, a central plank in Israel's founding ideology was the forcible removal of the indigenous population. This is an indispensable book for anyone interested in the current crisis in the Middle East.

absolutely essential reading/listening for a comprehensive understanding of the current violence in Gaza.

Absolutely heartbreaking. The current scenario comparisons are uncanny. It's almost like Isreal has a very specific plan, and has for 76yrs.

This book absolutely rocked my understanding of Palestine over the last 100 years. I used to be caught up in confusion over the war, never really knowing what it was about, but now I have a firmer understanding of the devastating consequences of colonisation. Palestine will be free.
