Postzionism is a term increasingly used in Israeli public culture to refer to those who challenge zionisms hegemony. This is the first book to discuss and analyze the debates over post-zionism that go to the heart of Israeli national identity and culture. Applying a framework drawn from contemporary cultural studies, postcolonial studies and the writings of Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari,The Postzionism Debatesconsiders the arguments of the critics of post-zionism, who believe that it represents an effort to subvert the historical foundations of the state of Israel, and the proponents of post-zionism, who think it is a necessary prerequisite of Israels emergence as a fully democratic society. The struggle for postzionism is a conflict over national memory and the control of cultural and physical space. Laurence J. Silberstein analyzes the phenomenon of postzionism and provides an intervention into this debate.
