Praise

“The most astonishing book on architecture that I have read in years.”—Edwin Heathcote, Financial Times

“A masterpiece of political analysis.”—James Ron, The Nation

“Eyal Weizman has taken Edward Said’s thesis to a new level, generating extraordinary, and at times surreally uncomfortable, conclusions…Weizman’s book is of salutary interest.”—Jay Merrick, Independent

“Weizman takes his readers on a tour of the visible and invisible ways in which Israel implements its control over Palestinians … Hollow Land is eloquent about the architectural chaos and confusion created by Israel in the Occupied Territories.”—Yonatan Mendel, London Review of Books

“A passionate jeremiad.”—Harper’s

“Eyal Weizman brilliantly deconstructs Israel’s yoking of traditionally humanist disciplines and discourse to the service of its campaign against the Palestinians. This book is chilling but essential reading.”—Ahdaf Soueif

Hollow Land is a remarkably original work that confirms Eyal Weizman’s indispensable role as a critic of the sinister and ubiquitous instrumentality of space in contemporary politics and life.”—Michael Sorkin

Hollow Land is a remarkable achievement. Scholarly and poetic in its epic reach, and narrated with the clarity of vision and sensibility of an artist, Hollow Land is destined to become a classic.”—Karma Nabulsi

“A startling exercise in what it means to think through the axiomatics of occupation, capture and subjection … Weizman boldly attempts to create an entirely new method to conceptualize the relationship between surfaces, movement, and the tools of war.”—Achille Mbembe

“A wrenching account of the multiple ways in which the land of Palestine has been hollowed out by Israeli occupation. Weizman’s stunning combination of words and images is at once a brilliant critique of the politics of space and a searing indictment of colonial rule and dispossession.”—Derek Gregory
