"Israeli-Arab" Political Mobilization: Between Acquiescence, Participation, and Resistance
1948 Palestinians (Israeli Arabs)-Israel's significant non-Jewish minority-are an invisible force and presence in the Palestine conflict. This book presents fresh insights into their political behavior. Using social movement theory and original field research material, it analyzes two case studies in the history of the 1948 Palestinians: Land Day 1976 and Habbat October 2000.
By using a more inclusive framework of analysis and acknowledging the role of human agency in transcending some of the material barriers to mobilization, Shoughry offers a new, comprehensive explanation for 1948 Palestinians' political mobilization and enables readers to better understand contemporary developments in the region.
