Co-Memory and Melancholia

Israelis Memorialising the Palestinian Nakba

Ronit Lentin

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Makes a critical sociological contribution to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, to social memory studies and to Middle East studies. Focuses in particular on commemmoration by the perpetrators of their victims' catastrophe
  • Makes an original contribution to the theoretical and empirical links between commemmorating the Holocaust and denying the Palestinian Nakba in Israel
  • Newly available in paperback, the first English language book-length text specifically focusing on Israeli society in relation to the Nakba in the context of social memory studies
  • Takes an auto-ethnographic approach based on the author's own experience - an innovation in relation to the study of the commemmoration by perpetrators of their victims' catastrophes
