Nation and history : Israeli historiography and identity between Zionism and post-Zionism by Yoav Gelber( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. During the last 20 years, Israel has reached unprecedented prosperity, yet it is haunted by existential fears for its future, identity, and survival. Israel's legitimacy is under assault from within and without by a coalition of left-wing radicals, Palestinians and their sympathizers, and Muslim fundamentalists. All these groups deny the existence of a Jewish nation and argue that Jews do not need a nation state. Hence, Israel should either disappear completely or become 'a state of all its citizens' devoid of any Jewish symbol or identity. The origins of this campaign are twofold. One derives from the traditional opposition that has accompanied Zionism from its inception. The second is contemporary, articulating the post-ist fads that swamped the West since the 1980s. The past occupies a prominent place in this crusade that aims at the present and future. Traditional historiography, scientific and pseudo-scientific, and the new vogue of memory and narrative, that claims to be the true history of human experience, are equally abused to delegitimize Israel. This book follows these two paths, while avoiding disputes over current political issues. First, it portrays the disciplinary background - the evolution of the modern history discipline. Subsequently, it focuses on the conflicting approaches to the cardinal issue of Zionism's essence: Is it a national liberation movement of European origin that offered a solution to the modern Jewish Question in a world of nationalities? Or is it a colonial movement that oppressed equally Arabs and oriental Jews?
Palestine, 1948 : war, escape and the emergence of the Palestinian refugee problem by Yoav Gelber( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and French and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on new and newly interpreted Israeli, British and Arab documents, this book attempts to integrate present controversies concerning the development of the Jewish-Palestinian war from December 1947 to mid-May 1948 and the consecutive Israeli-Arab war. It follows the organization of both sides at the beginning of the war and the shaping of their respective war policies. Further, it describes the creation of the invading coalition and its disintegration in the wake of the Arab armies' military failure. The book stresses the processes that led Palestinian society to its collapse and mass flight, and the Israeli reactions and policies that turned this temporary escape into a long-lasting refugee problem. Emphasizing the different historical and cultural perspectives of the adversaries and the context of the war's development, it criticizes the approach of the Israeli "New Historians" who tend to isolate the refugee problem from the broader issues of the war and treat it separately."--Jacket
Jewish-Transjordanian relations, 1921-48 by Yoav Gelber( Book )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this innovative work, Yoav Gelber traces the relation between the Jewish National Home and the Hashemite dynasty of Transjordan, not by starting from 1946 and the Jewish agency's agreement with Abdullah, but by focusing on the connection between the two regions from as early as 1921 when Amir Abdullah first appeared on the Palestine scene, and by concentrating as much on Jewish sources as British records
Comprehending the Holocaust : historical and literary research by Asher Cohen( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Israeli-Jordanian dialogue, 1948-1953 : cooperation, conspiracy, or collusion? by Yoav Gelber( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Israeli, Arab, British and American archival documents, the book follows the intricate balance between Israeli-Jordanian diplomatic activity and the realities of Israeli-Palestinian relations along the new armistice lines - innocent and hostile infiltration, retaliations and reprisals, to their culmination in the tragedy of Qibya in the fall of 1953 and the return of Jordan to the anti-Israeli Arab coalition."--Jacket
Vertreibung und Emigration deutschsprachiger Ingenieure nach Palästina 1933-1945 by Yoav Gelber( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in German and Undetermined and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the book deals with the immigrants' adjustment in Eretz Israel.
