Palestine is repeatedly forced on to the international agenda despite Israel’s genocidal attacks aimed at crushing Palestinian resistance. This book examines the history of Zionism, Israel and Palestine up to the time of the First Intifada – the mass uprising in Israel’s Occupied Territories which broke out in 1987.
It argues that to understand the problem of Palestine we must look beyond its borders to a structure of domination which affects the whole region – to an imperialism rooted in the empires of Britain and the United States. The state of Israel is but one part, though a vital one, of this structure; the rulers of the surrounding Arab states serve its interests too, and their subjects are as much its victims.
Only by challenging the entirety of this structure, Phil Marshall argues, will the dispossessed – of Palestine and the Arab world as a whole – be able to win liberation.
