New Books:

1) Conflict Transformation and the Palestinians: The Dynamics of Peace and Justice under Occupation
[I have a chapter in this book and my chapter is titled: Critical and Historical Assessment of BDS (Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions) Pp. 98-113]

2) Assuming Boycott: Resistance, agency and cultural production

Action:

US Campaign for Palestinian Rights staff spearheaded a letter to NFL players planning to attend an Israeli government-sponsored propaganda trip to Israel, urging the players to cancel. The next day, former Super Bowl star Michael Bennett boldly proclaimed “I’m not going to Israel” in a tweet along with a picture of Martin Luther King, Jr with Stokely Carmichael. Then, one by one, other players publicly cancelled with him. Of the 11 players initially slated to go, six athletes skipped the trip! This is a game changer.
