Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


"The articles in Palestinian collective memory and national identity analyze the evolution and cultivation of modern Palestinian collective memory and its role in shaping Palestinian national identity from its inception in the 1920s to the 2006 Palestinian elections. While collective memory is central for any group feeling, it is particularly important for the Palestinians as a semi-diasporic people who are still engaged in the struggle for statehood." -- Book cover.
