    Contemporary research often either overlooks Palestinians who experienced life under Israeli military rule (1948–1966) or describes them as acquiescent. This interview-based study draws on wide-ranging sources and the testimony of Palestinians in the Galilee and Triangle to provide multiple examples of people’s everyday resistance to the extension of Israeli military rule. The objects of this research are the acts of nonviolent resistance undertaken by Palestinians to preserve their own existence first and foremost rather than to endanger that of others. The testimony gathered signals the persistence of resistance, dignity, and identity, but it also speaks to how contingent and difficult acts of nonviolent resistance are.
