Reviews

At heart a historical essay, an effort to decide why the Palestinians . . . have failed to achieve an independent state.--Steven Erlanger, New York Times "A first-rate and up-to-date historical and political analysis of the Palestinian predicament."--Publishers Weekly's 100 Best Books issue "In a refreshing contrast to the yammering bazaar of complaint and allegation that has dominated American public discussion of the Middle East since Sept. 11, 2001, The Iron Cage is a patient and eloquent work, ranging over the whole of modern Palestinian history from World War I to the death of Yasser Arafat. Reorienting the Palestinian narrative around the attitudes and tactics of the Palestinians themselves, Khalidi lends a remarkable illumination to a story so wearily familiar it is often hard to believe anything new can be found within."--Jonathan Shainin, Salon "Khalidi uses history to provide a clear-eyed view of the region and assess the prospects for peace. He strives successfully for even-handedness."--Anthony Lewis, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gideon's Trumpet and Make No Law "A work of forceful historical analysis written in a spirit of self-examination."--Bashir Abu-Manneh, The Nation "Magisterial in scope, meticulous in its attention to detail, and decidedly dispassionate in its analysis, The Iron Cage is destined to be a benchmark of its genre." --Joel Schalit, Tikkun "Khalidi, tackling 'historical amnesia, ' brilliantly analyses the structural handicap which hobbled the Palestinians throughout 30 years of British rule . . . Khalidi restores the Palestinians to something more than victims, acknowledging that for all their disadvantages, they have played their role and can (and must) still do so to determine their own fate." --Ian Black, Guardian
