Editorial Reviews


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)


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)

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Aaron Levitt on May 4, 2009
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.
