"Palestine’s recent history, indeed Palestine’s and Palestinians’ very essence, has long been contested in the service of contemporary political agendas. In this important and timely contribution, Salim Tamari brings further nuance to Palestinian thought, culture, and society during the fateful last decade of the Ottoman Empire in a refreshingly nonpolemical way. Utilizing scholarly, representational, journalistic, and descriptive texts, he complicates received wisdom as well as enduring debates about not only Palestine and Palestinians but also regional and imperial dynamics."—Hasan Kayali, author of Arabs and Young Turks: Ottomanism, Arabism, and Islamism in the Ottoman Empire, 1908–1918
"This is a welcome addition to Palestinian historiography by the foremost local historian of Palestine today. Tamari’s multi-sited exploration of the country’s late Ottoman history is empirically rich and attentive to the bigger analytical picture. Set against the persistent denial of Palestine as an affective geographic, cultural, political, and economic space, the arguments of this book are significant, original, timely, and well made."—Jens Hanssen, author of Arabic Thought beyond the Liberal Age: Towards an Intellectual History of the Nahda
"This seminal collection of essays makes a major contribution and is a perfect capstone for Tamari's groundbreaking and must-read trilogy on Palestinian social history."—Mark LeVine, author of Heavy Metal Islam: Rock, Resistance, and the Struggle for the Soul of Islam
