This rich & magisterial work traces Palestine’s millennia-old heritage, uncovering cultures & societies of astounding depth & complexity that stretch back to the very beginnings of recorded history. Starting with the earliest references in Egyptian & Assyrian texts, Nur Masalha explores how Palestine & its Palestinian identity have evolved over thousands of years, from the Bronze Age to the present day.

Palestine A Four Thousand Year History

Drawing on a rich body of sources and the latest archaeological evidence, Masalha shows how Palestine’s multicultural past has been distorted and mythologised by Biblical lore and the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

In the process, Masalha reveals that the concept of Palestine, contrary to accepted belief, is not a modern invention or one constructed in opposition to Israel, but rooted firmly in ancient past. Palestine represents the authoritative account of the country’s history.
