In this carefully curated photobook, Ariella Azoulay offers a new perspective on four crucial years in the history of Palestine/Israel. The book traces the history of how the Palestinian majority in Mandatory Palestine became a minority in the state of Israel, it is a powerful text examining the devastating consequence the formation of Israel had on the Palestinian people.
By reading over 200 photographs from that period, most of which were previously confined to Israeli state archives, Azoulay recounts the events and the stories that for years have been ignored or only partially acknowledged in Israel and the West. Including substantial analytical text, this book will give activists, scholars and journalists a new perspective on the origins of the Palestine-Israel conflict
