Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - February 11, 2004

History Professor Beshara Dumani of U.C. Berkeley will be in conversation with Professor Ilan Pappe, an Israeli historian teaching at Haifa University, about his new book A History of Modern Palestine: One Land, Two People. It begins with the Ottomans in the early 1800s and traces a path through the arrival of the early Zionists at the end of that century, through the British mandate at the beginning of the twentieth century, the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, and the subsequent wars and conflicts which culminated in the intifadas of 1987 and 2000. While these events provide the background to the narrative and explain the construction of Zionist and Palestinian nationalism, at centre stage are those who lived through these times, men, women and children, Jews and Arabs. It is a story of coexistence, as well as oppression, occupation, and exile. Ilan Pappe is well-known as a revisionist historian of Israel.
