About this book

By positioning the late Edward Said's political interventions as a public intellectual on behalf of Palestinian populations living under Israeli occupation as a form of intellectual resistance, Abraham moves to consider forms of physical resistance, seeking to better understand the motivations of those who choose to turn their bodies into weapons.

Reviews

"Drawing on the magisterial writings of Edward Said and Frantz Fanon, Matthew Abraham has written a brilliant and balanced critique of academic Zionism and a robust defense of Palestinian resistence to Israeli ethnic cleansing." - James Petras, Bartle Professor Emeritus, Binghamton University, USA
