While plowing through grant proposals, I have come across a number of books that have been released in the past year that I really must read.
Authors most relevant to my dissertation work including Stacie Goddard, Ron Hassner, and Anthony Smith have all written new books that speak to questions of the origins of national identity and the role of nationalism in international territorial conflict.
Also a number of special interest books have been released this year including controversial Israeli historian Benny Morris’s One State, Two States, his latest take on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Shlomo Sand’s The Invention of the Jewish People, which has kicked up its share of sand in Israel and elsewhere.
If any of these were to magically appear on my doorstep, I would be a very happy camper. 🙂
