Summary

For too long Palestine has been submerged beneath layers of Zionist mythology. When the subject is broached, it is done from a falsely balanced perspective, measuring Israel and Palestine as if equals. This book asks readers to rethink how we study Palestine, beginning in the classroom. Inspired by Howard Zinn's method of teaching the voices of the oppressed, The Politics of Teaching Palestine to Americans adopts this approach, exploring pedagogical methods and a social justice framework for using Palestinian culture to inspire teachers and students to understand Palestine.

Author Biography
