Political into Gendered Israeli-Palestinian Dialoguing. In their struggle against the Israeli military occupation of their land and control over all aspects of their lives, Palestinian women in the West Bank and Gaza Strip have exhibited both despair and defiance.

Their despair stems from rising levels of poverty, violence and hopelessness; women are constrained not only by Israeli Occupation policies but also as a result of some of the patriarchal traditions of their own society.

Lentin is an activist for Palestinian liberation and for the Palestinian right of return.

Nahla Abdo is Professor of Sociology at Carleton University, Ottawa. She has published extensively on women and the state in the Middle East with special focus on Palestinian women. Among the publications is Sociological Thought: Beyound Eurocentric Theory (1996).

Nahla Abdo, Ronit Lentin. The (auto)biographical narratives in this volume focus on some of the most disturbing effects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: a sense of dislocation that goes well beyond the geographical meaning of the word; it involves social, cultural, national and gender dislocation, including alienation from one's own home, family, community, and society.

Israel and the Daughters of the Shoah: Reoccupying the Territories of Silence. Berghahn Books, 2000. Berghahn Books, 2002. Ireland: Racial state and crisis racism.

As the crisis in Israel does not show any signs of abating, this remarkable collection, edited by an Israeli and a Palestinian scholar and with contributions by Palestinian and Israeli women, offers a vivid and harrowing picture of the conflict and of its impact on daily life, especially as it affects women's experiences that differ significantly from those of men.

The (auto)biographical narratives in this volume focus on some of the most disturbing effects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: a sense of dislocation that goes well beyond the geographical meaning of the word; it involves social, cultural, national and gender dislocation, including alienation from one's own home, family, community, and society. The accounts become even more poignant if seen against the backdrop of the roots of the conflict, the real or imaginary construct of a state to save and shelter particularly European Jews from the horrors of Nazism in parallel to the other side of the coin: Israel as a settler-colonial state responsible for the displacement of the Palestinian nation.
