In the tragic reality of continuing conflict between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs, this book affirms the insoluble ties between the two communities. Rachel Feldhay Brenner examines how the literatures of both groups defy the ideologies that have obscured conversation between the two peoples. Brenner's examination of Israel's literature demonstrates the impact of Zionist identification with the West on the formation of the Israeli cultural canon. Readings from Jewish writers such as Amos Oz, A. B. Yehoshua, and David Grossman, as well as from Arab writers such as Atallah Mansour, Emile Habiby, and Anton Shammas provide new insight into Israeli-Arab relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"By comparing Arab writers whose literary language is Hebrew with Jewish Hebrew writers, Brenner helps establish a balance and rebuts the exclusionary definition of Israeli literature. Her original analysis ties the Zionist rejection of the Jewish Diaspora to the denial of the presence, and subsequently, of the rights, of Palestine's Arabs. The book's scope and structure provide a fresh perspective on one hundred years of cultural and political conflict." Gershon Shafir, University of California, San Diego
