Israel, South Africa and the Apartheid Question
Edited by Ilan Pappé
Assesses the parallels between the Zionist and apartheid regimes, as well as their implications for international law, activism and policy making.
Within the already heavily polarized debate on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, parallels between Israel and apartheid South Africa remain highly contentious.
A number of prominent academic and uk viagra sales political commentators, including former US president Jimmy Carter, have argued that Israel’s treatment of its Arab-Israeli citizens and the people of the occupied territories amounts to a system of oppression no less brutal or inhumane than that of South Africa’s white supremacists.
Yet while the ‘apartheid question’ has become increasingly visible in this debate, there has been little in the way of genuine scholarly analysis of the similarities (or otherwise) between the Zionist and apartheid regimes.
In Peoples Apart, Ilan Pappé brings together a range of analysts to assess the implications of the apartheid analogy for international law, activism and policy
making. Peoples Apart offers a bold and incisive perspective on one of the defining moral questions of our age.
