I really liked the hundred years' war on Palestine, it is a book that is well written, very documented and present a thorough history of Palestine through 6 key moments, from 1917 to the second Intifada. Rashid Khalidi makes the book really interesting, by focusing on key moments and mixing the historical narrative with his and his family history. Two of the strong arguments of this book are that there is a Palestinian nation and population (something that is regularly denied by Israel) and that the Zionist and Israeli project is by its nature colonial. While these are strong arguments in favour of a free Palestine, the author doesn't fall into an easy demonization of Jewish people in Israel and concludes that whoever claim Palestinian and Israelis have on this land, they both need to find a way to live together, without colonial and repression of Palestinian.
