Old Historians, New Historians, No Historians
The Derailed Debate on the Genesis of Israel
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Israeli is exceptionally distinguished by his independent thinking, rigorous research, and compelling writing style. In this new and highly germane volume, he surveys competing historical presentations of Zionism and Israel's founding, as a backdrop to the nagging question of the legitimacy of the reconstituted Jewish state. Israeli's readiness to jump into the intellectual and political arena--and offer a cogent historical scrutiny--provides a major contribution to the interested readership and public."
--Mordechai Nisan, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"Israeli has published a monumental account on Israel's right to exist as any other nation in the world. The debate within the small circle of Israeli historians on this subject is portrayed in detail against the background of the intensifying ideological battle between the liberal West and jihadist Islam. Israeli offers a new path, namely a rethinking of Jordan as the future Palestinian homeland, which offers a more realistic prospect to implement the Palestinians' right to self-determination."
--Marc Cogen, Professor of International Law, Brussels
