National Minority, Regional Majority: Palestinian Arabs Versus Jews in Israel

  • ISBN13: 9780815632306
  • Condition: NEW
  • Notes: Brand New from Publisher. No Remainder Mark.

Product Description
The struggle between Israelis and Palestinians has proven to be one of the most complex and intractable conflicts of our time, persisting for more than a century despite the efforts of leaders in both the Middle East and the West. In National Minority, Regional Majority, Yitzhak Reiter reexamines the relationship between the Jewish majority and the Palestinian Arab minority in Israel, focusing on the unique dynamic at work there between a religiously and ethnically defined majority and a significant national minority with assurance and erudition. Reiter explores the complex factors that influence the ethnonational conflict. Drawing extensively on the theory of “interlocking conflicts,” the author chronicles the pattern of alternating tranquility and rebellion in Jewish-Arab relations.

Reiter’s meticulous research and nuanced analysis yield a sophisticated interpretation of Israeli policy toward the Palestinians and offer a powerful approach toward conflict management.

The Arab National Project in Youssef Chahine’s Cinema

Product Description
In a major addition to the academic library on the cinema of Youssef Chahine and on Arab and Egyptian cinema in general, Malek Khouri here presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date study on Chahine’s work to appear since his death in 2008. The methodological approach of the book, and more precisely the discussion of the theme of Arab national unity from a post-colonial point of view, emphasizes the ideological underpinnings of this Egyptian director’s themes as well as his esthetics. The author focuses on the interaction between Chahine’s personal and political preoccupations, his eclectic cinematic style, and his devotion to connecting with a wide audience of filmgoers.

The Arab National Project in Youssef Chahine’s Cinema is an important contribution to original scholarship in the fields of cultural studies, sociology of film, and history of cinema, and will be of great interest to scholars, students, and cinema lovers all over the world.
