Is Israel following international law? This collection looks at three contentious terms that arise in contemporary arguments about Israel's practices towards Palestinians - occupation, colonialism and apartheid, and how they are manipulated by the Israeli state.
These essays present conclusive evidence that Israel's administration of the Palestinian territories is consistent with colonialism and apartheid. Moreover, these practices are deliberate Israeli state policies, which are imposed on the Palestinian population under military occupation.
Beyond Occupation raises serious implications for the legality and legitimacy of Israel's continuing occupation, highlighting the responsibility of the entire international community.
