Distinguished history professor Ilan Pappé has drawn upon a lifetime of academic research and reflection to produce “The Idea of Israel,” a remarkable, challenging book. He examines the role of Zionist ideology that led to the creation of Israel.

Pappe’s book reflects on how generations of historians have framed the 1948 conflict as a liberation campaign, creating a myth about its foundation that lasts today.

“The Idea of Israel” examines how Zionism operates outside of government and military through education, media and cinema.  It helps explain, perhaps even expose, the ideological structure that underpins Israel.

Whatever your personal view of Israel and Zionism, the intellectual prowess of Professor Pappe is unquestionable. Share or dismiss his conclusions as you wish, but what he says demands consideration and reflection.
