Reviews

"The book provides a unique insight into the sociological and political complexities of Bedouin society in southern Israel and how individuals negotiate their identities as Arabs, Israelis, and Palestinians . . . Recommended." - CHOICE

"Palestinian Activism in Israel provides an overdue and important intervention against gendered, clichéd representations of women in general and Palestinian-Bedouin-Israeli women in particular." - Katya Gibel Mevorach, professor of Anthropology & American Studies, Grinnell College
