HOLLOW LAND WEIZMAN PDF

Even before the Israeli "War of Independence," or the Palestinian "Catastrophe," depending upon your viewpoint either way it took place between 15 May to 20 July , no one could propose a partition that would be satisfactory to both sides. Jewish and Arab areas were either intermixed and far too close to separate out, or they virtually overlapped. In , for example, the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine UNSCOP was unable to carve out a contiguous Israeli state out of Palestine, and so had to content itself with proposing the creation of two politically separate but geographically overlapping and interconnected states, one Israeli, the other Palestinian. Over the course of the creation of the "Green Line," which marked the separation between the new State of Israel and its neighbors at the moment of the Armistice, more than , Palestinians were either displaced from or forced out of their homes in Israel "proper. Starting in late , and in clear violation of both international law and its own laws -- battles have been fought in the Israeli High Court of Justice ever since -- Israel began to systematically "settle," that is to say, colonize the West Bank especially "Greater Jerusalem" and the Gaza Strip.

Mazulrajas While not written as a history, this gives you an incredible depth and breadth of view into the situation. It also challenges you to question liberalism itself, and joins in the growing body of literature critical of both liberal reform and foreign aid and the ways these so often go together. That it came bundled in a chapter explaining the new Israeli practice of blasting their way through the walls of civilian homes to move around the refugee lsnd made it more sinister.

Brilliant work on the three dimensionality of the Occupation. This is a must read for anyone interested in the Palestinian — Israeli conflict and in finding a new dimension to understanding and analyzing struggle.

Been reading this book on and off for some 3 years or so you know, that kind of A Thousand Plateaus kind of thing and it was only in the wake of recent events that I decided to read it start-to-end. All this in a manner and writing style that is simple, clear, and to the point without over complicating issues holpow understating others.

My only small critique is that while Weizman emphasizes the multiplicity of actors responsible for the creation of space in the occupied territories, the role of Palestinian struggle only really emerges in the last chapter on Evacuations. The urban militarism chapter is brilliant and I had read before in essay form. His focus is quite heavy on the built environment, which is less relevant for me, but I think that nonetheless produced space and its control is clearly part of any military strategy.

This strategy is partly a response to insurgent tactics themselves: Jul 03, gonads rated it it was amazing. Since he oand a global professor at Princeton University. In he set up the research agency Forensic Architecture FA.

Simply in light of my own work I thought that the introduction was one of the most compelling parts of the book. Of course, security threats as an infinitude makes the settlements permanent. The same was done visually with the bylaws around stone construction that was meant to evoke an authenticity of a historical Jewish territorial homeland.

Being a refugee is terrible enough, but for armed men to weizamn blasting through your wall without warning? This book is an investigation of the transformation of the Occupied Palestinian Territories since It does not so much call upon Foucault or Deleuze and Guattari as exemplify them, and give them terrifying real world application.

No trivia or quizzes yet. This material construction of space also followed along the established forms of military logics in maintaining various strategic forms of visibility. You think it will be theoretical and agonizingly abstracted from an unjust reality, but it is the opposite.

The space of the city began to be marked by Jewishization of spaces via archaeology and agriculture. The occupation would not have been possible without them.

The settlements themselves are often treated as military units. Related Articles.

It offers an extremely in-depth, critical examination of Israeli architecture and urban planning within the occupied territories. Weizman folds in thinking about modern Israeli history, military intelligence and architecture to paint a profound, wide ranging picture of how Israel has rendered Palestinian space as permanently plastic, always in the process of being unsettled and shifted, and more importantly he shows how this transformation of space is not merely an aca This is a PHENOMENAL book. Highly, highly recommended. Weizman is gifted in both his way of handling the data, the theory and the narrative.
