Surrounded: Palestinian Soldiers in the Israeli Military

By Rhoda Ann Kanaaneh | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

MANY PEOPLE AND INSTITUTIONS are to be thanked for helping make this book possible. Research was supported by a Richard Carley Hunt Writing Fellowship from the Wenner Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, a Palestinian American Research Center fellowship, and an American University Faculty Research Award. Various stages of writing were also made possible by a Faculty Fellowship at New York University's Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, a Jean Monnet Fellowship at the Robert Schuman Center for Advanced Studies of the European University Institute, and appointments as a visiting scholar at Columbia University's departments of Anthropology and Middle East Languages and Civilizations, and NYU's Department of Social and Cultural Analysis and the Department of Middle East and Islamic Studies.

I am indebted to many individuals—relatives, friends, acquaintances, friends of friends, and especially my parents' network of colleagues— who assisted in mediating with soldiers to encourage them to agree to participate in this study. Although they must remain anonymous here, for this key role I am extremely grateful. The soldiers themselves, though we disagree on many things, must be thanked for their willingness to meet with me and for their time and energy.

As this project has gone through various stages and drafts, it has benefited from the feedback and suggestions of many wise people. Long discussions with Salim Tamari and Amitav Ghosh planted the seeds of a number of ideas in this book. Rashid Khalidi shepherded the manuscript over several obstacles.
