Pappé is a prolific author, with titles including: Ten Myths about Israel (New York: Verso Books, 2017), The Bureaucracy of Evil: The History of the Israeli Occupation (Oxford: Oneworld, 2012), and The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine (London and New York: Oneworld, 2006).

In this interview, Pappé describes the evolution of his own understanding of Israel-Palestine when he realized that what he had been taught about Israel’s founding conflicted with historical record. In an article for Palestine Chronicle, Pappé writes about Israel’s policies of killing Palestinian children.
