"Roby’s book is a tour de force in anti-colonial historiography. This unearthed chapter of history undermines many of the assumptions about the early years of the state of Israel. This is not only a must book for any scholar in Middle East Studies but also an outstanding contribution to and post-colonial studies in general"—Ariella Azoulay, professor of Modern Culture & Media and Comparative Literature, Brown University

"With modesty, care, reservation and empirical rigor, Roby has re-conceptualized our understanding of the nascent formation of Israel’s Mizrahi collectivity. His utilization of a wealth of hitherto unexplored documentation from the archives of the Israeli police—coupled with his critical scrutiny of additional primary source material in Hebrew, Arabic, English, French, and Judeo- Arabic—have produced a focused, unpretentious, and highly enjoyable book."—Moshe Behar, coeditor of Modern Middle Eastern Jewish Thought

  The Mizrahi Era of Rebellion

  Bryan K. Roby received his PhD in Middle Eastern studies from the University of Manchester. He has recently completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at New York University and has lectured on Israeli and Middle Eastern history throughout Europe, England, and the United States.
