Israel Denial is the first book to offer detailed analyses of the work faculty members have published-individually and collectively--in support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement; it contrasts their claims with options for promoting peace. The faculty discussed here have devoted a significant part of their professional lives to delegitimizing the Jewish state. While there are beliefs they hold in common-including the conviction that there is nothing good to say about Israel-they also develop distinctive arguments designed to recruit converts to their cause in novel ways. They do so both as writers and as teachers; Israel Denial is the first to give substantial attention to anti-Zionist pedagogy. No effort to understand the BDS movement's impact on the academy and public policy can be complete without the kind of understanding this book offers. A co-publication of the Academic Engagement Network

La nostra recensione

After Nelson's book, no one should be able to take the work of the BDS professors seriously, given their reliance on propagandistic lies. Cary Nelson's Israel is not the mythic realm of demons fantasized by BDS advocates but an actual place that contains signs of hope. -- David Mikics, Tablet Israel Denial is an epic response to BDS and its pseudo-intellectual underpinnings. * elder of Ziyon * The campaign to boycott Israel wants to be seen as a symbolic marker of the true community of the good; it poses as the simple global resistance to the Israeli right. Israel Denial disrupts this dishonest and menacing positioning. It raises its banner within the community of the progressive, it articulates opposition to both the BDS and the pro-settler nationalist flag-wavers, it embraces a politics of peace and it consistently opposes both anti-Arab racism and antisemitism. -- DAVID HIRSH, Goldsmiths University, author of Contemporary Left Antisemitism This is a fine book on the strategies and argumentation of the BDS movement, and on some of its leading proponents. Nelson offers his readers powerful dissections and refutations of many of the BDS's talking points, as well as some thoughts about moving towards accommodations regarding -if not a solution to-the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. -- BENNY MORRIS, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, author of One State, Two States: Resolving the Israel/Palestine Conflict and other books
