Description

The signing of the Oslo agreement between Palestine and Israel in 1993 was hailed as an historic moment inaugurating a new epoch of peaceful coexistence for both parties. Yet, despite the positive moves on the parts of both Arabs and Israelis, the conflict continues and the Palestinians now seem as far away as ever from achieving statehood. Palestine in Crisis is a highly acclaimed, succinct overview of this critical period in contemporary Middle Eastern politics, now brought fully up to date with an afterword covering recent events.
