Lorenzo Veracini is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra.


In Israel and Settler Society, Lorenzo Veracini takes on the argument that the state of Israel is unique. This claim, underpinned by notions of a chosen people, is an important buttress in the edifice of Zionism because it denies the very possibility of analogy. Without such comparative perspectives, judgement, analysis and critique beome well nigh impossible. Where Veracini is more tendentious is in his claim that US support for Israel stems ultimately from the 'settler determined consciousness of a specific republican tradition'. -- John Yandell, Palestine News Veracini argues that the conflict is best understood in terms of colonialism. Like many other societies, Israel is a settler society. Looking in detail at other colonial regimes, Veracini presents a thoughtful interpretation of the dynamics of colonialism, offering a clear framework within which to understand the Middle East crisis. -- The Middle East This book portrays Israel as a settler society that can best be understood by comparing its development to apartheid South Africa, French Algeria and Australia. The author argues that the Israeli-Palestinian dispute is not unique, but rather is based on nationality and religion, and that Israeli society is organized in a manner similar to the South African system of apartheid, with the settler society serving as a key component thereof. -- Middle East Journal
