The Invention of Palestinian Citizenship, 1918-1947

Lauren Banko

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Covers the overlapping social, administrative and political eras in the creation of Palestinian citizenship, from the final decades of the Ottoman imperial age through the first two decades of the mandate
  • Explores a transitional period in Palestine's history that has seen little nuanced historical research
  • Places the development of the changing status of citizenship in mandate Palestine in its historical context
  • Approaches the 'invention' of citizenship in Palestine through a number of frameworks: the wider British imperial project, the development of Arab populist politics and civil society, and the circulation of ideas to and from the Palestinian Arab diaspora
