This collection of thirteen essays explains and analyzes the conflict between the Government of Israel and the Palestine Authority (PA) over the granting of sovereignty to Palestinians from the point of view of international law. The dispute - emotional, so far intractable, often violent - is of global, not merely Middle Eastern concern. The essays cover two general topics: the political nature of the conflict and the economic issues. The collection includes eight respected contributions previously published and five newly written essays. The contributors represent a range of political alignments and differing perspectives, providing the widest possible scope for understanding the issues and beliefs relating to the conflict. Includes an up-to-date bibliography; fully indexed.
