Abstract

Book Reviews 185 rent ground realities. In the first part of the book, Pappe outlines how Zion- ist history framed Palestinians as alien or terrorist. In the second part, Pappe details the rise of the New Historians in Israel, who challenged the dominant narrative by adopting a revisionist approach to Israeli history, especially with reference to the birth of Israel and the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Pappe con- cludes on a sobering note, highlighting how the failure of the Oslo peace process and the outbreak of the second intifada heralded the decline of the post-Zionist movement. What resulted was a vicious backlash in the form of the rise of “neo-Zionism,” a more militaristic, right-wing, ethnocentric, and chauvinistic version of classical Zionism. The Idea of Israel is an eagle-eye view of the historic development and deployment of the ideology of Zionism and its challengers. To a large degree, it presumes that readers are acquainted with the details of the Arab-Israeli conflict and, thus, may be difficult to fol- low for those who are not conversant with the facts. At the same time, it is to some degree also biographic—at times somewhat gratingly, as for instance when Pappe reproduces a verbatim praise
