Army of shadows : Palestinian collaboration with Zionism, 1917-1948 by Hillel Cohen( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "Army of Shadows" Hillel Cohen utilizes a broad range of sources in several languages to produce the most judicious and nuanced study available on the complex phenomenon of collaboration by Palestinian Arabs with agencies of the Zionist movement during the British mandate period. Cohen effectively explores the motives and contexts which led some Palestinians to collaborate with Zionism and assesses the extent to which such collaboration contributed to Zionism's success in acquiring land for Jewish settlement, overcoming Palestinian nationalist resistance, and laying the foundations of a Jewish state. Inspired by stories he heard in the West Bank as a child, Hillel Cohen uncovers a hidden history in this extraordinary and beautifully written book--a history central to the narrative of the Israel-Palestine conflict but for the most part willfully ignored until now. In "Army of Shadows, "initially published in Israel to high acclaim and intense controversy, he tells the story of Arabs who, from the very beginning of the Arab-Israeli encounter, sided with the Zionists and aided them politically, economically, and in security matters. Based on newly declassified documents and research in Zionist, Arab, and British sources, "Army of Shadows "follows Bedouins who hosted Jewish neighbors, weapons dealers, pro-Zionist propagandists, and informers and local leaders who cooperated with the Zionists, and others to reveal an alternate history of the mandate period with repercussions extending to this day. The book illuminates the Palestinian nationalist movement, which branded these "collaborators" as traitors and persecuted them; the Zionist movement, which used them to undermine Palestinian society from within and betrayed them; and the collaborators themselves, who held an alternate view of Palestinian nationalism
Good Arabs : the Israeli security agencies and the Israeli Arabs, 1948-1967 by Hillel Cohen( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on his reading of top-secret files of the Israeli police and the prime minister's office, Hillel Cohen exposes the full extent of the crucial, and, until now, willfully hidden history of Palestinian collaboration with Israelis - and of the Arab resistance to it. Cohen's previous book, the highly acclaimed Army of Shadows, told how this hidden history played out from 1917 to 1948, and now, in Good Arabs he focuses on the system of collaborators established by Israel in each and every Arab community after the 1948 war. Covering a broad spectrum of attitudes and behaviors, Cohen brings together the stories of activists, mukhtars, collaborators, teachers, and sheikhs, telling how Israeli security agencies penetrated Arab communities, how they obtained collaboration, how national activists fought them, and how deeply this activity influenced daily life. When this book was first published in Hebrew, it became a bestseller and has evoked bitter memories and intense discussions among Palestinians in Israel and prompted the reclassification of many of the hundreds of documents Cohen viewed to uncover a story that continues to unfold to this day."--Jacket

Les Palestiniens face à la conquête sioniste, 1917-1948 : traîtres ou patriotes? by Hillel Cohen( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur explore, au jour le jour, région par région, famille par famille, les motifs qui ont conduit certains Arabes de Palestine à coopérer avec les institutions sionistes, dans le contexte colonial du mandat britannique. Il éclaire les méthode de recrutement des collaborateurs, leur utilisation en vue de miner la société palestinienne de l'intérieur. Loin de tout jugement moral ou politique, il offre aussi une description vivante de la formation de l'identité palestinienne
