Geographies of Liberation

This chapter examines the political involvement of African American intellectual Ralph Bunche in three interrelated ethical questions during the era of World War II: the Negro question, the Jewish question, and the question of Palestine. It shows the global conjunctures that shaped the politics of binationalism, of which Bunche’s changing political views, Palestinian Communists, and Jewish antinationalists were a part. Bunche developed an analysis of binationalism through his interactions with antinationalist Jewish intellectuals as well as with Communist organizers in Palestine. In order to trace the geographies of the Afro-Arab world from the 1930s to the outset of the Cold War, the chapter focuses on Bunche’s participation in international debate concerning the partition of Palestine.

Keywords:   Palestine, Ralph Bunche, binational state, political community, Palestinian Communists, Jewish antinationalists
