As the most violent forces of nationalism and colonialism bombard Palestine, Khabar Keslan presents Panos Aprahamian 's timely and invaluable critique of nationalism, "Not, Not Nation." Borrowing from the discursive framework of Walid Saadek's essay "Not, not Arab," Aprahamian takes the reader on a journey through Lebanon's 'graveyard of lost futures' to examine the reactionary myth-making each required and the contradictions inherent in their visions of past and future. The essay deconstructs the failures and inconsistencies of nationalism in Lebanon to argue for a radical re-envisioning of how anti-capitalist political projects should conceive of time and place.
