The Last Resistance
Verso, 2007 - 237 pagina's
In The Last Resistance,Jacqueline Rose explores the power of writing to create and transformour political lives. In particular, she examines the role of literaturein the Zionist imagination: here, literature is presented as a uniqueform of dissidence, with the power to expose the unconscious ofnations, and often proposing radical alternatives to their dominantpathways and beliefs.
While Israel-Palestine is the repeated focus, The Last Resistance alsoturns to post-apartheid South Africa, to American national fantasypost-9/11, and to key moments for the understanding of Jewish cultureand memory.

Examining topics ranging from DavidGrossman, through W.G. Sebald, Freud, Nadine Gordimer, the concept ofevil, and suicide bombers, The Last Resistance offers a unique way of responding to the crises of the times.
