Summary
"In this journey from the subterranean spaces under the West Bank and Gaza to the militarized airspace above, Eyal Weizman unravels Israel's mechanisms of control and transformation of the Occupied Territories into a constructed artifice, in which all natural and built features function as the weapons and ammunition with which the conflict is waged. Weizman traces the development of these ideas, from the influence of archaeology on urban planning, Ariel Sharon's reconceptualization of military defence before the 1973 war, through the planning and architecture of the settlements, to contemporary Israeli discourse and practice of urban warfare and airborne targeted assassinations." "In exploring Israel's methods to transform the landscape and the built environment themselves into tools of domination and control, Hollow Land lays bare the political system at the heart of this complex and terrifying project of late-modern colonial occupation."--BOOK JACKET
