About the Author

Keith P. Feldman is assistant professor of comparative ethnic studies and a core faculty member in the Program in Critical Theory at the University of California, Berkeley.


"In this remarkable work Keith Feldman shows us the prolific and intractable connections between the production of race in the United States and the Israeli Occupation of Palestine, making a solid case for the relevance of Palestine to the ongoing assaults of racial capitalism in the United States. The tremendous result is no less than a reenvisioning of the antiracist and anti-imperialist solidarities of the past in the service of culling the potential solidarities of the future. A tour de force."--Jasbir Puar, Rutgers University

"A Shadow over Palestine has the potential to help us bring into existence the less vexing, and more just, history yet to come."--SCTIW Review

"If [Feldman] has succeeded in raising up the memory of a time when to think of Palestine was to think, too, of the surrounding region and indeed the world, he has done for us an important service."--Jadaliyya

"A Shadow Over Palestine is an extraordinary, interdisciplinary contribution to our understanding of the US special relation with Israel. . . a must read for scholars and activists dedicated to this complex subject."--Cultural Studies

"This book is well-researched and a great example of Ethnic Studies scholarship."--Ethnic and Racial Studies

"Feldman's book covers a kaleidoscopic range of American views of Israel/Palestine in the 1960s-1980s."--Mondoweiss

"A Shadow over Palestine is a work that historians, particularly historians of race/ethnicity and America and the World, should read and grapple with for themselves."--Canadian Journal of History / Annales canadiennes d'histoire
