The introduction outlines the main puzzle of the book: the question of what lies beneath sentiments of political despair as expressed by leftist Jewish Israelis when confronted with the seeming intractability of conflict and violence in Israel-Palestine. After positioning the book within relevant regional and conceptual literature, the introduction posits apathy as a form of “active disengagement” rather than a lack or absence of care, adding texture and complexity to this political phenomenon. This section then argues for a methodological shift to the level of everyday life and micro-politics, detailing how gender analysis is particularly suited to interrupting normalcy and producing transformative interventions.
