Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide

a book by Ben White

[2009] An interview with author Ben White by Stefan Christoff.

Israeli Apartheid: A Beginnerís Guide distils the work of academics and experts into a highly readable introduction. This is the book to read if you want to understand the root of the conflict and how apartheid applies to the situation in Palestine.

Ben White begins by succinctly explaining the origins of Zionist theory and colonization and details what happened in 1948 during the creation of Israel, as Palestinians were killed, driven from their homes and deprived of their land and livelihoods.

White goes on to examine current examples of Israeli apartheid. Packed with information, quotations and resources, the book is rooted in the authorís extensive on-the-ground experience in the region. It also includes short testimonies by Palestinians who describe how Israeli apartheid affects their daily lives.

Indispensable for the Palestinian solidarity movement, Israeli Apartheid aims to inform and mobilize, and is a vital resource for anyone who wants to help work towards peace.
