Zusammenfassung With interdisciplinary analyses of texts whose origins span the diversity of the Jewish and Muslim traditions, the provocative essays collected in Israeli-Palestinian Conflict in the Francophone World offer startling insights into the meaning of the volatile history of this conflict in the Francophone world. In France and the Francophone world, the hostilities of the on-going Israeli-Palestinian conflict are consistently reenacted in cultural clashes between the large Muslim and Jewish populations within France and throughout the Francophone Diaspora. The notable scholars appearing in this collection interrogate the complex history of this conflict – from the beginnings of Zionism in 1897 to the first and second Intifada of 1987 and 2000 – and give unique perspectives culled from a diverse range of literary, philosophical, historical, and psychoanalytic frameworks. An important and unique volume, Israeli-Palestinian Conflict in the Francophone World , will shed new light for the reader on the dense ideological antagonisms at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and will surely be celebrated as an invaluable resource for scholars, students, and teachers alike.
