The History and the Politics of the Bedouin: Reimagining Nomadism in Modern Palestine

2014 Modernity and Autochthony DPDF fellow recently published The History and Politics of the Bedouin.This book examines contending visions on nomadism in modern Palestine, with a special focus on the British Mandate period. Extending from the late Ottoman period to the founding of the State of Israel, it highlights both ruptures and continuities with the Ottoman past and the Israeli present, to prove that nomadism was not invented by the British or the Zionists, but is the shared legacy of Ottoman, British, Zionist, Palestinian, and most recently, Israeli attitudes to the Bedouin of Palestine.
