Salim Tamari is Professor of Sociology at Birzeit University, Palestine, Director of the Institute of Jerusalem Studies, and the author of Mountain against the Sea and Year of the Locust.
"A valuable addition to our knowledge of Palestine in the late Ottoman and early British Mandate periods. . . .The mix of sociological approaches and historical depth is enlightening as evidenced by the themes the essays explore and Tamari’s fine analytical eye." - Journal of Palestine
"In The Great War and the Remaking of Palestine, Salim Tamari extends his already significant contributions to the historiography of late Ottoman Palestine. In a collection of linked essays, he covers topics from sewage and city planning, to a nearly forgotten early Palestinian feminist, to Ottoman cartography and ethnography of Palestine. This diversity alone makes the point that Palestine is a site in which a vast array of historical subjects can be explored." - Ilana Feldman, American Historical Review
