9780745335117: White City, Black City: Architecture and War in Tel Aviv and Jaffa
Críticas:

'An important and fascinating exposé through architecture, geography and history, of the rise of the Jewish city of Tel Aviv, the fabled ‘white city,’ and the degradation of its Arab neighbour, Jaffa, once the bride of the sea, into a chaotic, degenerated urban backwater. A sad but revealing history of how myths are forged and histories corrupted.' (Raja Shehadeh, author of Palestinian Walks: Notes on a Vanishing Landscape and winner of the Orwell Prize)

'A superbly researched and exemplary architectural study ... If you want an explanation of the roots of the Israel-Palestine conflict – and of just how deep they go, right into the very foundations of the buildings – this book gives one of the most unusual and convincing accounts.' (Owen Hatherley, Guardian)

'Gripping' (The Economist)

'A path-breaking and brilliant analysis' (Eyal Weizman, author of 'Hollow Land')

'Beautiful' (Time Out)

'A challenging book that deserves to be read and argued over. Rotbard here slaughters an especially sacred cow: Tel Avivness' (Tom Segev, Haaretz)

'A fundamental, fascinating and clever book on architecture in the service of politics' (Adam Baruch, Maariv)

Rotbard writes counterhistory, subversive history, which contradicts the official story of the White City that grew and flourished among the sand dunes. As Benjamin puts it, “he brushes history against the grain.” (Michael Feige, Journal of Israeli History)

'A masterpiece of critical essay writing' (Ariella Azoulay, author of 'The Civil Contract of Photograph' and 'From Palestine to Israel: A Photographic Record of Destruction and State Formation, 1947-1950')

Rotbard’s book is written with a political and esthetical responsibility: not only in relation to his discoveries, but also in relation to the censored political story of the Tel Avivian landscape, that its false signs are freedom, secularism and progress. Rotbard demonstrates how the cultural imagination marks its narrative on the place, and more important from this, he draws a straight line between the fiction of “the flourishing of wilderness” and the actual contemporary violence that is supported upon it. (Omri Herzog, Haaretz)

A fundamental, fascinating and clever book on architecture in the service of politics (Adam Baruch, Maariv)

Not a book about architecture. It is a political text written in a beautiful clear language, under the cover of a book on architecture. This is one of the most radical texts published in Hebrew in recent years (Time Out)

Rotbard writes counterhistory, subversive history, which contradicts the official story of the White City that grew and flourished among the sand dunes (Michael Feige, Journal of Israeli History)

Descripción PLUTO PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 1st ed.. 214 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the history of colonialism as seen though the architecture of Israel/Palestine. Tel Aviv is the White City , said to have risen from the sands of the desert, acclaimed worldwide for its architectural heritage and gleaming Bauhaus-inspired Modernism. Jaffa is the Black City , the Palestinian city that was largely obliterated to make way for a new European-style architecture at the heart of a newly-formed Israel. Both a gripping narrative and a unique architectural record, this book shows how any city in the world is made not only of stones and concrete but also of stories and histories - victors and losers, predator and prey. In this way, the legend of the Black City and the White City, architecture and war, is our story too. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780745335117

Descripción Pluto Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, White City, Black City: Architecture and War in Tel Aviv and Jaffa, Sharon Rotbard, White City, Black City is a story of two intertwining narratives which reveals the hidden history of the region where now stands modern-day Tel Aviv. The new architectural landscape of this city, its Bauhaus-influenced modernist architecture glittering white, represents one side of the story, that of the White City, which rose from the sparse sand dunes to house a new Jewish society. But there is a second story - that of the Black City of Jaffa, the traces of which lie on the outskirts of the region, and which are rarely mentioned. In this book, Sharon Rotbard blows apart this palimpsest in a clear, fluent and challenging style, which promises to force the reality of what so many have praised as 'progress' into the mainstream discourse. White City, Black City is, all at once, an angry uncovering of a vanished history, a book mourning the loss of an architectural heritage, a careful study in urban design and a beautifully written narrative history. It is in all senses a political book, but one that expands beyond the typical. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780745335117
