A full audio recording of last night's launch of Jewish Identity and Palestinian Rights by David Landy has been posted online for all those who were not able to attend the event, or who would like to hear something again. The recordings include Landy's brief talk about the book, the discussion between Landy and Richard Kuper of Jews for Justice for Palestinians, and the question/answer session with the audience.
Jewish Identity and Palestinian Rights: Diaspora Jewish Opposition to Israel is one of Zed's newest titles. The book is a groundbreaking study of this vital and growing worldwide social movement of Jews who oppose Israel's treatment of Palestinians, examining in depth how it challenges traditional diasporic Jewish representations of itself. It looks at why people join this movement and how they relate to the Palestinians and their struggle, asking searching questions about transnational solidarity movements.
