Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent in-depth piece of research into the Jewish assets issue.

(Moshe Gat The Journal of Israeli History 1900-01-00)

It combines the best qualities of persistence and detachment in the research process and moral committment and empathy in presenting and evaluating the evidence gathered from research.

(Joel Beinin American Historical Review)

This book is a must-read for anyone dealing with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but it is particularly relevant for Jews from the Arab and Muslim world, for whom it will provide useful and up-to-date data and a deep understanding of the issue.

(Sami Shalom Chetrit Journal of Palestine Studies 1900-01-00)

An important contribution to the study of Middle Eastern and North African Jews as well as to minorities studies, Israeli politics, and Jewish organizations.

(Jewish Book World 1900-01-00)

Review

Clear, rigorous, and elegant, this book will stir up enormous discussion. It may even serve as a guide to peace negotiations in the Middle East.

(Yehouda Shenhav, professor of sociology and anthropology, Tel-Aviv University, and author of The Arab-Jews: Nationalism, Religion, and Ethnicity)|

For far too long the injustices done to Jews who lost property in Arab countries between 1948 and 1965 have been ignored or exploited for political profit. For this meticulous study Michael R. Fischbach scoured Israeli, Arab, and other archives. By documenting the different policies adopted by Arab countries toward Jewish property and compensation for its expropriation, and by examining the obstacles raised by Israeli governments and front organizations to prevent Jews from Arab countries from reaching compensation agreements with those who actually took their property, Fischbach has made a lasting contribution to our understanding of these complex issues. Jewish Property Claims Against Arab Countries provides the basis for fair and politically productive settlements of the claims of both Palestinians and Jews against governments whose policies have deprived them of their homes, their livelihoods, and their fortunes. This is old-school, archive-based history at its best.

(Ian S. Lustick, Bess W. Heyman Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania)

Format: Hardcover
Michael Fischbach has produced another critically important work for anyone affected by, or interested in, the Arab-Israeli conflict. His painstaking research and even-handed analysis stand out from the crowd writing on this politically charged subject. Anyone who has read Records of Dispossession should read this book, and vice versa.
