BBC Radio 3 to host Shlomo Sand

On February 19th 2013 at 22:00 GMT BBC Radio Three’s Night Waves programme will feature Philip Dodd hosting the Israeli historian Shlomo Sand.  

According to the programme’s synopsis, the subject under discussion will be Sand’s latest book – published last year – entitled ‘The Invention of the Land of Israel’.

It will be interesting to see whether Dodd picks up on the opportunist motives behind this latest volume of activist history by Sand – a historian of France and Europe rather than the ancient period – and whether he informs his audience of the political use made of Sand’s books by anti-Israel campaigners.
