Summary
  • "No family was more intimately associated with the failure of the Palestinians to achieve independence before the creation of Israel than the Husayni family. Ilan Pappe presents us with a most engaging political biography of that clan and the ways it exercised influence in Palestine from Ottoman times through the end of the British Mandate." Philip S. Khoury, Ford International Professor of History, Massachusetts Institute of Technology -- Book Jacket
  • "Ilan Pappe, son of a family of Holocaust survivors, offers his readers a spellbinding account of the Husayni family and the crucial role they played throughout the modern history of Palestine. Marshalling a vast and rich array of material--much of it brought here for the first time--about a family whose members were central figures in the formation of modern Palestinian society. Pappe arrives at an overall narrative of Palestine and the national movement of its people that is as intriguing for its many new insights as it is revealing for the relevance it turns out to have for our view of Palestine today." Mahmoud Yazbak, University of Haifa -- Book Jacket
  • In this Deeply Researched political biography, Ilan Pappe traces the rise of the Husayni family of Jerusalem, who dominated Palestinian history from the early 1700s until the second half of the twentieth century. Viewing this sweeping saga through the prism of one family, the book sheds new light on crucial events--the invasion of Palestine by Napoleon, the decline of the Ottoman Empire, World War I, Western colonialism, and the advent of Zionism--and provides an unforgettable picture of the Palestinian tragedy in its entirety. The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian Dynasty is the history of Palestinian politics before national movements and political parties: at the height of the Husaynis' influence, positions in Jerusalem and Palestine could only be obtained through the family's power base. In telling the story of one family, the book highlights the continuity between periods customarily divided into pre-modern and modern, pre-Zionist and Zionist, illuminating history as it was actually lived. --Book Jacket
