How should we understand the international debate about the future of Israel and the Palestinians? Can justice be achieved in the Middle East? Until now, there was no single place for people to go to find detailed scholarly essays analyzing proposals to boycott Israel and the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement of which they are a part.

This book for the first time provides the historical background necessary for informed evaluation of one of the most controversial issues of our day - the struggle between two peoples living side-by-side but with conflicting views of history and conflicting national ambitions. This book encourages empathy for all parties, but it also takes a cold look at what solutions are realistic and possible. In doing so, it tackles issues, like the role of anti-Semitism in calls for the abolition of the Jewish state, that many have found impossible to confront until now. The book gathers essays by an international cohort of scholars from Britain, Israel, and the United States.

Contributors Include: Russell Berman, Emily Budick, Michael Berube, David Caplan, Donna Divine, Rachel S. Harris, Dr. David Hirsch, Nancy Koppelman, Richard Landes, Kenneth Marcus, Marthan Nussbaum, Sabah Salih, Kenneth Stein, S. Ilan Troen, Shira Wolosky, Mitchell Cohen, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, Samuel Edelman, Alan Johnson, Michael Kotzin, Sharon Musher, Asaf Romirowsky.
