Except for Palestine: The Limits of Progressive Politics
At a recent book talk hosted by the Rutgers Center for Security, Race and Rights, Marc Lamont Hill and Mitchell Plitnick discussed a question percolating among American progressive political circles: why are so many progressives not applying their commitments to counter racism, settler-colonialism, and human rights violations to Palestinians? What explains what is commonly known as PEP - Progressive Except for Palestine? Hill and Plitnick's book Except for Palestine: The Limits of Progressive Politics wrestles with these questions.
