Syracuse University Press recently published a book by Dr. Magid Shihade entitled:Not Just a Soccer Game: Colonialism and Conflict among Palestinians in Israel.” Shihade is a faculty member at the Ibrahim Abu Lughod Institute of International Studies. His research focuses on modernity, violence and identity, as well as the anthropology and politics of knowledge. He has published several journal articles and book chapters on these subjects.

 

This book sheds light on the growing problem of internal conflicts and violence within the Palestinian community in Israel. It takes as a case study the soccer game between two Palestinian villages, Kafr Yassif and Julis, which ended in a fight between the fans, resulting in the killing of two people, one from each village.
