Contents:
Key concepts and historical context -- The nationalist youth and veteran nationalists -- The Arab unity scheme and the beginnings of popular mobilization -- An Islamic congress, an Arab congress and the Istiqlal Party -- Creating and regulating the Palestinian public sphere -- The non-cooperation programme -- The demonstrations of 1933 -- Through the lens of 1936.
Review: "Palestinian Arab nationalism is often portrayed as an elite ideology that did not gain popular appeal until after 1948. In this groundbreaking book, Weldon C. Matthews reexamines the rise of nationalism in Palestinian politics, using a wide range of sources. He finds that the new generation of Arab nationalists which emerged in the 1920s sought to construct an inclusive public sphere around the idea of the nation. Through schools athletic clubs, newspapers and public rallies, the nationalists took their vision to the grassroots of Palestinian society."--Jacket.
