The Palestine Laboratory shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards 2024

What an honour for my book, The Palestine Laboratory, to be shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards 2024, one of Australia’s major writing prizes.

The judges comments:

Can power be measured by a state’s ability to weaponise the business of oppression? This is the timely question at the heart of independent journalist Antony Loewenstein’s latest book The Palestine Laboratory: how Israel exports the technology of occupation around the world. Loewenstein deconstructs the tools of Israel’s military-industrial complex, analysing what he describes as ‘the architecture of control’, used on Palestinians before being sold around the world to strengthen despots from Guatemala to Myanmar. Loewenstein’s global investigation exposes secret documents and details exclusive interviews that reveal the role Israel plays in spreading instruments of repression.

Congratulations to the other shortlisted books. The winner is announced on 1 February, 2024.
