Call for Papers: Jerusalem Quarterly Special Issue on ‘Spying, Intelligence Services, Security and Surveillance’

The editors of Jerusalem Quarterly are seeking contributions for a special issue on ‘Spying, Intelligence Services, Security, and Surveillance in the Recent History of Jerusalem and Palestine’, to be published mid-2016.

The issue was inspired by Shuruq Harb’s essay “The First Palestinian Spy: Rahab the Prostitute and Yashu’ Ben Nun’s Army in Jericho”.

Suggested topics include:

1. The NILI Group: Abrahamson, the Ottomans and the British

2. Aziz Bey: Jamal Pasha’s Mukhabarat in Damascus and Jerusalem

3. British, German, Austrian and French Intelligence in Syria and Palestine

4. Antonin Jaussen: The Archaeologist as Spy

5. Max von Oppenheim, the Eighth Bureau and Teshkilat Makhsusah (Teskilat Mehsuseh)

6. Aerial Photography, Surveillance and the Bavarian Air force in Palestine

7. Monitoring ‘Suspicious Activities’ in the Old City: Cameras, Sound Sensors and Bio Metric Surveillance

8. Jordanian Intelligence Records in Jerusalem: The ISA archives.

9. Um al Qura: The Village Leagues and their newspaper during the First Intifada

10. Review of al Istikhbarat al Uthmaniyya published recently by Dar al Farabi (Beirut)

Please consider sending chapters from books in preparation, or recently published.

All contributions should be sent to Jerusalem Quarterly, IPS, Ramallah POB 212, Palestine or by email to stamari[at]palestine-studies.org.
