Interior text pages are flawless. This book treats a subject that resonates with anyone who studies the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and particularly Palestinian nationalism: that how Palestinian history is remembered and constructed is as meaningful to our understanding of the current struggle as arriving at some sort of complete understanding of its history. The author studies how a major anti-colonial insurrection, the 1936-38 strike and revolt in Palestine against the British, is remembered in Palestinian nationalist historiography, western and Israeli official historical discourse, and Palestinian popular memory. Using primarily oral history interviews, supplemented by archival material and national monuments, he presents multiple, complex, contradictory, and alternative interpretations of historical events. The book is thematically divided into explorations of Palestinian nationalist symbols, stereotypes, and myths; Israeli national monuments that simultaneously act as historical injunctions against forgetting Jewish history and efforts to marginalize, vilify, and obliterate the Arab history of Palestine; Palestine subaltern memories as resistance to official narratives, including unpopular and controversial recollections of collaboration and assassination; and finally, how the recodification and revival of memories of the revolt informed the Palestinian intifada that erupted in 1987. Contents: Glossary Acknowledgments, Introduction: Memories of Revolt, Popular Memory and the Palestinian National Past, Scenes of Erasure, Popular Nationalism, Memory as Resistance, (Un)popular Memories: Accommodation and Collaboration, Memory Recoded: Intifada Thawra, Epilogue: Fabulous Images, Afterword, Notes, and Bibliography.
