The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine: A History of Settler Colonial Conquest and Resistance – book launch with Prof. Rashid Khalidi and Dr. Rana Barakat.
The 20th century for Palestine and the Palestinians has been a century of denial: denial of statehood, denial of nationhood and denial of history. The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine is Rashid Khalidi’s powerful response. Drawing on his family archives, he reclaims the fundamental right of any people: to narrate their history on their own terms.
