Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide by Ben White
Indispensable for the Palestinian solidarity movement, Israeli Apartheid distills 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 theory and colonisation and details the treatment of Palestinians during the creation of Israel in 1948 then proceeds to examine current examples 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 who describe how Israeli apartheid affects their daily lives.
