"Living Emergency argues convincingly that the permit regime functions in ways that exceed the security logics it is meant to uphold, operating instead as a powerful mechanism of population management and deepening Israeli control and surveillance of everyday life in Palestine." (Michelle D. Weitzel Journal of Palestine Studies)
"Living Emergency is a groundbreaking analysis of the bureaucracy of occupation. And in Yael Berda, this intricate and obfuscated bureaucracy has met its match: Her meticulous research and brilliant insights call on us all to acknowledge the ways in which the contemporary rule of officials has developed across the globe." (Eyal Weizman University of London, author of Forensic Architecture: Violence at the Threshold of Detectability )
"Yael Berda's pointed and precise study plunges readers into an ugly and dark reality. A lawyer and ethnographer, she knows the jurisprudence of the Israeli 'permit regime' and sees the damages and despair it inflicts. Living Emergency tracks a form of infliction that operates on minute and life altering scales." (Ann Stoler The New School, and author of Duress: Imperial Durabilities in Our Times)
"The next time someone tells you that Israel's occupation of the West Bank is benign―or designed only to provide Israel security―hand them Yael Berda's Living Emergency." (Peter Beinart author of The Crisis of Zionism)
"Living Emergency is a deeply humane study of the permit regime in the West Bank. The neocolonial resonances of this malign system of control, and the technologies and institutional logics it bares for us, are fast being replicated in other places around the world, and in ways that are too loud for any reader to ignore." (Sanjay Kak filmmaker and editor of Until My Freedom Has Come: The New Intifada in Kashmir)
"In Living Emergency, Jewish Israeli lawyer Yael Berda leverages her years of experience representing Palestinian laborers by using detailed personal anecdotes, administrative documents, and extensive historical research to construct a thorough picture of how the Israeli government manages and restricts the movement of Palestinians in the West Bank." (Zander Guzy-Sprague Middle East Journal)
