Can a state be both democratic and ethnically self-defined? The Afro-Middle East Centre’s (AMEC) publication interrogates concepts such as ‘cosmopolitanism’, ‘nationalism’, ‘ethnocracy’ and ‘citizenship’ using Israel as a case study. It takes us from the founding myths to the 2008/09 Gaza war and its consequences.
