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. Indispensable for anyone interested in the current crisis in the Middle East.
