The Agency and Resilience of the Palestinians Shines: On Imagining Palestine: Cultures of Exile and National Identity by Tahrir Hamdi


  • Ilan Pappe University of Exeter


All these audio, verbal and visual expressions of the “pen” are part and parcel of the Palestinian resistance since its very inception, but never before have they been articulated as a theory of resistance, one that helps to unpack the Palestinian experience in a way that feeds back into our understanding of other current struggles by indigenous people, life seekers, workers and anyone else which is victimized by the economic, political and moral order determined by the global north. Such a theorization is offered to us here by Tahrir Hamdi in her moving and thought-provoking book.
