The Power of Inclusive Exclusion: Anatomy of Israeli Rule in the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Editors:

Adi Ophir, Michal Givoni and Sari Hanafi

 

New York: Zone Books to be published in  January 2009.

 

Executive Summary

On the eve of its fifth decade, the Israeli occupation in the Palestinian territories can no longer be considered a temporary aberration. In the shadow of the Oslo process and the second Intifada, the occupation's hold over Palestinian life, society, space and land has been nothing but entrenched, while acquiring more sophisticated and long-lasting forms. 

 

This collection of essays by leading Israeli and Palestinian scholars, The power of Inclusive Exclusion, accompanied by a comprehensive chronology, photographs and documents, is a groundbreaking attempt to analyze the Israeli occupation as a rationalized system of political rule. It features a comprehensive range of inquiries that address some of the fundamental dimensions of the occupation regime in its current phase – the unpredictable bureaucratic apparatus, the fragmentation of space and regulation of movement, the intricate tapestry of law and regulations, the discriminatory control over economic flows and the calculated use of military violence. Employing a variety of disciplinary and intellectual perspectives, the essays in the volume go beyond prevalent views of the occupation as either a skewed form of brutal colonization, a form of "Jewish Apartheid" or an inevitable piecemeal and improvised response to "terrorism". Pretending neither to blur Israel's responsibility for the Palestinian predicament nor to portray the occupation as a premeditated and coherent project, the essays uncover the structural logic that sustains and reproduces the occupation regime and thus delineate the stakes for an informed opposition to it.

 

The Power of Inclusive Exclusion offers an analytical outlook that is sensitive to the specific features of the Israeli occupation and yet strives to unravel the similarities that it shares with other contemporary forms of discriminatory rule. In a time when military occupations resurface, political disasters abound and protracted control over groups of non-citizens is enhanced and normalized, this meticulous study of the Israeli occupation develops an analytical model and a new set of categories that may be employed by students of emergency regimes elsewhere.
