Palestine and the Palestinians in the 21st Century

Recent developments in Palestinian political, economic, and social life have resulted in greater insecurity and diminishing confidence in Israel's willingness to abide by political agreements or the Palestinian leadership's ability to forge consensus. This volume examines the legacies of the past century, conditions of life in the present, and the possibilities and constraints on prospects for peace and self-determination in the future. These historically grounded essays by leading scholars engage the issues that continue to shape Palestinian society, such as economic development, access to resources, religious transformation, and political movements.

Reviews

"[P]articularly timely . . . ."—The Electronic Intifada

"[P]articularly timely . . . .Feb. 28, 2014"—The Electronic Intifada

"Offers a multidisciplinary lens on the past decade and deeply examines the major issues which have blighted negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis over the past 10-15 years: land, water, elections, political leadership, legal paradigms, and the death of the 'two-state' solution. It makes for an exciting, fresh, and timely new text on Palestine and Palestinians."—Dawn Chatty, author of Displacement and Dispossession in the Modern Middle East
