The Israel/Palestine Reader Edited by ALAN DOWTY
Introduction to any complex international conflict is enriched when the voices of the adversaries are heard. The Israel/Palestine Reader is an innovative collection focused on the human dimension of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian confrontation. From Mark Twain to Theodor Herzl, Gamal Abdul Nasser, Golda Meir, Anwar Sadat, Ezer Weizman, Ehud Barak, Marwan Barghouti, Mahmoud Abbas, Benjamin Netanyahu, John Kerry, and others, the first-hand narratives in this Reader bring the conflict to life as seen by those closest to it. Each of its chapters is framed by an introduction which sets the pieces in context. By juxtaposing contrasting viewpoints, both between and within the opposed parties, the drama of the conflict is underlined while final judgment is left to the reader. This lively volume will add color and texture to any study of Arab-Israeli issues or of the Middle East generally. ALAN DOWTY is Professor Emeritus of Political Science and Senior Associate for Middle East Studies at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame. He is the author of the bestselling book Israel/Palestine, now in its 4th edition.

Is Whistleblowing a Duty? EMANUELA CEVA & MICHELE BOCCHIOLA
Recent years have seen a number of whistleblowers risk their liberty to expose illegal and corrupt behavior. Can there be a moral duty to emulate their example and blow the whistle? In this book, leading political philosophers Emanuela Ceva and Michele Bocchiola offer a crisp discussion of this question from the perspective of political theory. They draw on well-known cases, such as Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, to probe the difference between permissible and dutiful whistleblowing. They argue that insofar as whistleblowing is understood as an individual act of dissent, it falls short of constituting a duty, although it can be praiseworthy as an act of heroism. Whistleblowing should, they contend, be seen as an institutional duty, embedded within the organizational practices of public accountability. This concise book is an invaluable guide for students and scholars of applied political theory, as well as political, business and organizational ethics. EMANUELA CEVA is Associate Professor of Political Philosophy at the University of Pavia. MICHELE BOCCHIOLA is Research Fellow in Political Philosophy at the University of Pavia.
