Gaza has become synonymous with conflict and dispute. Though only slightly larger than Omaha, Nebraska at 140 square miles, the small territory of Gaza has been a hot spot for bitter disputes between sparring powers for millennia, from the Ancient Egyptians up until the British Empire and even today. Wedged between the Negev and Sinai deserts on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other, Gaza was contested by the Pharaohs, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Fatimids, Mamluks, Crusaders, and Ottomans. Then in 1948, 200,000 people sought refuge in Gaza-a marginal area neither Israel nor Egypt wanted. It is here that Palestinian nationalism grew and sprouted into a dream of statehood, a journey much filled with strife. Though small in size, Gaza's history is nothing short of monumental. Jean-Pierre Filiu's Gaza is the first complete history of the territory in any language. Beginning with the Hyksos in 18th century BC, Filiu takes readers through modern times and the ongoing disputes of the region, ending with what may be in store for the future.

A dazzling celebration of Palestinian cuisine, featuring more than 80 modern recipes, captivating stories and stunning travel photography. "Yasmin Khan draws on her vast experience as a storyteller, cook, human rights activist, itinerant traveler and writer to create a moving, empathetic, hugely knowledgeable and utterly delicious book." —Anthony Bourdain Yasmin Khan unlocks the flavors and fragrances of modern Palestine, from the sun-kissed pomegranate stalls of Akka, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, through evergreen oases of date plantations in the Jordan Valley, to the fading fish markets of Gaza City. Palestinian food is winningly fresh and bright, centered around colorful mezze dishes that feature the region’s bountiful eggplants, peppers, artichokes, and green beans; slow-cooked stews of chicken and lamb flavored with Palestinian barahat spice blends; and the marriage of local olive oil with earthy za’atar, served in small bowls to accompany toasted breads. It has evolved over several millennia through the influences of Arabic, Jewish, Armenian, Persian, Turkish, and Bedouin cultures and civilizations that have ruled over, or lived in, the area known as ancient Palestine. In each place she visits, Khan enters the kitchens of Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds, discovering the secrets of their cuisine and sharing heartlifting stories.

As Israel's control of the Occupied Palestinian Territory nears its fiftieth anniversary, The Writing on the Wall offers a critical perspective on the international law of occupation. Advocating a normative and functional approach to occupation and to the question of when it exists, it analyzes the application of humanitarian and human rights law, pointing to the risk of using the law of occupation in its current version to legitimize new variations of conquest and colonialism. The book points to the need for reconsidering the law of occupation in light of changing forms of control, such as those evident in Gaza. Although the Israeli occupation is a main focal point, the book broadens its compass to look at other cases, such as Iraq, Northern Cyprus, and Western Sahara, highlighting the role that international law plays in all of these cases.

In 1872 August Eisenlohr observed, 'It has long been the object of Egyptologists to discover in the numerous Egyptian monuments still remaining in stone and papyrus, traces of the Israelites, which might show us the events related in the Old Testament from an Egyptian point of view.' Much has changed since Eisenlohr uttered those words. Many scholars today maintain a less judicious approach, arguing that there was little contact between Egypt and the Bible.This volume will argue vigorously against that prevailing minimalistic approach. The reality is that we do not give the biblical writers enough credit for their knowledge of the ancient Near East and of Egypt in particular. A primary aim of this book is to show many firm point of contact between Egypt and the Bible on a variety of levels.

Laila El-Haddad takes us into the intense life and world of a busy Palestinian journalist who is both covering the story of Gaza and living it, with her young son. El-Haddad was in Gaza City in 2005, watching hopefully as the Israelis prepared a troop withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. She covered the January 2006 Palestinian elections--judged 'free and fair’ by international monitors. But then, she watched aghast as the Israeli government, backed by the Bush administration, moved in to punish Gaza’s 1.5 million people for the way they voted by throwing a tough siege around the Strip. Gaza Mom>/i>provides a wealth of detail (and some charming photographs) that inform readers about the daily lives of Gaza's Palestinians, along with El-Haddad's reporting and political analysis.

Zehn Jahre danach: Der Finanzcrash und seine dramatischen Folgen Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn nicht nur ist durch die Finanzkrise die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.

Gehört Israel den Juden? Was bedeutet überhaupt Israel? Wer hat dort gelebt, wer erhebt Ansprüche auf das Land, wie kam es zur Staatsgründung Israels? Shlomo Sand, einer der schärfsten Kritiker der israelischen Politik gegenüber den Palästinensern, stellt den Gründungsmythos seines Landes radikal in Frage. Überzeugend weist er nach, dass entgegen der israelischen Unabhängigkeitserklärung und heutiger Regierungspropaganda die Juden nie danach gestrebt haben, in ihr „angestammtes Land“ zurückzukehren, und dass auch heute ihre Mehrheit nicht in Israel lebt oder leben will. Es gibt kein „historisches Anrecht“ der Juden auf das Land Israel, so Sand. Diese Idee sei ein Erbe des unseligen Nationalismus des 19. Jahrhunderts, begierig aufgegriffen von den Zionisten jener Zeit. In kolonialistischer Manier hätten sie die Juden zur Landnahme in Palästina und zur Vertreibung der palästinensischen Bevölkerung aufgerufen, die dann nach der Staatsgründung 1948 konsequent umgesetzt wurde. Nachdrücklich fordert Sand die israelische Gesellschaft auf, sich von den Mythen des Zionismus zu verabschieden und die historischen Tatsachen anzuerkennen.

This is a classic study into the Egyptians' use of the past, focusing on the pictures and texts common in Ancient Egypt showing groupings of kings. The author discusses the genesis and development of the "king list" tradition, following a tradition over three millennia. After taking a chronological approach to "king lists", annals and day lists from the Old to New Kingdoms, the book focuses on the Aegyptiaca of Manetho, perhaps the first truly 'historical' approach to Egyptian sources written during the early Ptolemaic period.

Jetzt sind sie um die dreißig und müssen feststellen, dass sie ihren Erwartungen nicht gerecht geworden sind.

Ein jeder für sich versuchen sie, das moralische und ideelle Vakuum, in dem sie leben, zu füllen, und nicht einmal der intellektuelle Übervater der Generation – Marinas Vater, der Journalist Murray Thwaite – ahnt, was ihnen allen droht. Da taucht aus der Provinz Marinas Cousin Bootie auf, und seine Ambitionen stellen sie alle gefährlich bloß, kurz bevor der 11. September ihre ganze Welt verändert.

Wenn Malakeh Jazmati Heimweh bekommt, dann öffnet sie ihr Gefrierfach und viele kleine Beutelchen purzeln heraus. Sie duften nach Heimat. Nach Minze, Kardamom und Koriander. Und sie zaubern ein strahlendes Lächeln auf das Gesicht der jungen syrischen Köchin. Ihr Allheilmittel gegen Heimweh und schlechte Laune heißt: kochen, essen, feiern. So kennt sie das von zu Hause aus Damaskus, wo man zusammensitzt und gemeinsam speist. Wo Kultur und Tradition von einer Generation auf die nächste in Form von Rezepten weitergegeben werden. Nun gibt Malakeh ihre Familienrezepte in diesem Kochbuch weiter: Knusprige Fladenbrotchips mit Reis und Sesam-Joghurt-Sauce, Weinblätter mit Hackfleisch und Reis, Tabouleh und Co. Dazu gibt sie Einblicke in ihr altes syrisches und neues Berliner Leben. Denn Essen verbindet Kulturen.

"... takes a new look at the situation in one of the hottest spots on the globe and asks what impact the politicization of women will have on the lives of people in the emerging Palestinian state." —NWSA Journal This volume introduces the reader to the social and political roles and challenges faced by women of Arab/Palestinian society. Even Arabic commentators have failed to accurately assess the contributions of women within the struggles of Gaza and the West Bank. These essays, written from an "insider's" perspective, show how Palestinian women confront issues of gender, feminism, and the national agenda.
