Abstract or Brief Description

There is a famous quote – attributed in various versions to Arthur C. Clarke, William James, Arthur Schopenhauer, Leo Szilard and Sidney Webb, among others – that goes like this: "Every new truth passes through three stages. In the beginning the experts ridicule it as 'nonsense.' Then they dismiss it as 'trivial.' And in the end we learn that they 'said it all along.'" In his recent review of our book The Global Political Economy of Israel, Baruch Kimmerling seems unsure as to whether our work is nonsense or something he has been saying all along.
