Indispensable for the Palestinian solidarity movement, Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide distils the work of academics and experts into a highly readable introduction. This is the book to read if you want to understand the root of the conflict and how apartheid applies to the situation in Palestine.
Ben White begins by succinctly explaining the origins of Zionist colonisation and the crucial events of 1948. He then proceeds to examine the current structure of Israeli apartheid.
Packed with absorbing content, the book is rooted in the author's extensive on-the-ground experience in the region. It also includes short testimonies by Palestinians about how Israeli apartheid affects their daily lives, as well as a 'Frequently Asked Questions' section.
