INFO:

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign was honoured to launch the paperback of Ilan Pappe’s new book, The Biggest Prison on Earth: A History of the Occupied Territories (Oneworld, 2019) on 12th October 2019 in Dublin. This podcast is a recording of the talk by the acclaimed Israeli historian where he discussed a book which has been called “critical for understanding the present situation and looking forward to possible solutions”.

About the Book

Shortlisted for the Palestine Book Awards 2017

From the author of the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine – the seminal study of the 1948 Nakba and the violent creation of the State of Israel – comes an incisive look at the Occupied Palestinian Territories, picking up the story where that book left off.

In this comprehensive exploration of one of the world’s most prolonged and tragic conflicts, Pappe uses recently declassified archival material to analyse the motivations and strategies of the generals and politicians – and the decision-making process itself – that laid the foundation of Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. From a survey of the legal and bureaucratic infrastructures that were put in place to control the population of over one million Palestinians, to the security mechanisms that vigorously enforced that control, Pappe paints a picture of what is to all intents and purposes the world’s largest ‘open prison’.

About the Author

Ilan Pappe is Professor of History at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies and Director of the European Centre for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter, and the author of over a dozen books including the bestselling The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, A History of Modern Palestine, The Idea of Israel, Ten Myths About Israel and The Forgotten Palestinians: A History of the Palestinians in Israel. In 2017, Pappe was awarded the Middle East Monitor’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Palestine Book Awards.

Hosted by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
