The Palestinians in Israel: Readings in History, Politics and Society, edited by Nadim N. Rouhana and Areej Sabbagh-Khoury, explores the collective experience of the Palestinians who remained in Israel and the complex nature of their relationship to the state, presenting historiography and analysis on social shifts and internal formations of political and identity awareness. It is also available in Arabic and Hebrew.
Another important release is The Haifa Declaration (PDF). Over 50 years after the 1948 Nakba, a group of Palestinian intellectuals, academics, and activists from different fields and political viewpoints initiated an effort to draft a statement of a collective vision of Palestinian citizens in Israel. The project began in 2002 and sought to create a forum for Arab citizens from a broad social and political base to freely discuss their vision of the past, present, and future. The result of this effort is the Haifa Declaration: a vision of their collective future and status in their homeland, the major challenges facing their society, and their relationship with their people, nation, and the state of Israel.
