The book describes in detail the more than 400 Palestinian villages destroyed or depopulated during the 1948 war. Each village entry comprises statistical data and several narrative sections as well as a description of the current status of the site, including post-1948 Israeli settlements.
Containes information on towns, villages, land marks, and more. The book includes 150 Pages of analysis of the Mandate, Partition Plan, Palestine borders, land ownership, population composition, the 1948 war, al Nakba, and more. AND 500 Atlas pages covering all Palestine.
Hundreds of Palestinian villages were left empty across Israel when their residents became refugees after the 1948 war, their lands and property confiscated. Noga Kadman has reconstructed this history of erasure for all 418 depopulated villages.
Palestinian Village Histories reveals how history is written, recorded, and contested, as well as the roles that Palestinian conceptions of their past play in contemporary life. This book analyzes individual and collective historical accounts of everyday life in pre-1948 Palestinian villages as composed today from the perspectives of these long-term refugees.
