The story of the Palestinian search to establish a state begins in the era of British control over Palestine and stretches between the two world wars, when colonial control of the region became increasingly unpopular and power began to shift toward the United States. In this crucial period, and in the years immediately following World War II, Palestinian leaders were unable to achieve the long-cherished goal of establishing an independent state--a critical failure that throws a bright light on the efforts of the Palestinians to create a state in the many decades since 1948. By frankly discussing the reasons behind this failure, Khalidi offers a much-needed perspective for anyone concerned about peace in the Middle East.--From publisher description.… (mais)

When I started reading this book, I wasn't very familiar with the details of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and I felt that the book was very argumentative and aggressive. After reading more books on the subject and coming back to this one to finish it, I didn't get that impression. It could be that from Ch.6 on his writing style changed, or it could be that I understood the issue more fully and had gotten over the idea that any attack on Israel is somehow inherently bad. Where did that idea come from anyway?

The Iron Cage is by no means light reading, but it's informative reading and a good supplement to a library of books on the Arab-Israeli / Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Don't let it be your first book on the subject, though. ( )

It can be hard to pick up a book when you know you're going to watch the main characters go down a bad road, and especially hard when it ends with no end in sight. Such is the case with Khalidi's excellent study of the struggle for Palestinian statehood. From its origins during the British mandate to the settlements and divisions today, Khalidi's book examines almost 80 years of Palestinian political events. Despite the breadth of the story being told, the book is extremely succinct in the telling, and an accessible overview of the challenges they have faced and decisions they have made.

As an anarchist, I found this book somewhat challenging in its focus upon statehood as the ultimate goal of the Palestinian struggle. Throughout, the author's consideration is of how close the Palestinians came to achieving this goal and the failures thereof. There are certainly many benefits to statehood as opposed to the condition of stateless colonial domination faced by the Palestinians in the decades passed. However, alternatives to statehood and the establishment of centralized authority and monopoly of power are generally explored as either negatives or lesser modes of organization. While I enjoyed this book, the frame through which the story is told is somewhat limited. I don't know of any anarchist studies of the anticolonial struggle of the Palestinians, but I'll keep an eye out. ( )

Too much left wing bias, but need to keep reading these to stay balanced. ( )

"At a time when a lasting peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis seems
virtually unattainable, understanding the roots of their conflict is an
essential step in restoring hope to the region. Rashid Khalidi, one of the most
respected historians and political observers of the Middle East homes in on
Palestinian politics and history. By drawing on a wealth of experience and
scholarship, Khalidi provides a lucid context for the realities on the ground
today, an context that has been, until now, notably lacing in our discourse."
