Palestinian Identity: the construction of modern national consciousness

Describes the origins and development of Palestinian nationalism, addressing both the ongoing questions and prevailing misconceptions. Khalidi (history, U. of Chicago) suggests that the growth of Palestinian nationalism was not merely a response to Zionism. He illuminates the sources of collective Palestinian identity from the late Ottoman Empire onward, examining factors such as religious beliefs, ethnic backgrounds, local loyalties, education, Palestinian scholars, the Arab press, and British colonization.
