For many years I have been grappling, as a Jew, a writer and a sociologist, with Israel – what it is, what it should be and how it impacts on those outside the country itself. I call this theme ‘Israel/Palestine’ both to emphasise the fractious entanglement between the country/proto-country, and also to acknowledge that a large part of my work is actually about the consequences of this entanglement.

This themed collection includes my work on Israeli metal, my work on divisions over Israel and Zionism in Diaspora Jewish communities, as well as my work on how the Israel/Palestine entanglement plays out across the world.
