Political Economy of Israel's Occup


Political Economy of Israel's Occup Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories since 1967 has many important economic aspects that are often overlooked. In this highly original book, Shir Hever shows that both sides need to address the economic dimension if progress is to be made. Hever rejects the premise that Israel keeps control over Palestinian territories for material gain, and also the premise that Israel is merely defending itself from Palestinian aggression. Instead, he argues that the occupation has reached an impasse, with the Palestinian resistance making exploitation of the Palestinians by Israeli business interests difficult, and the Israeli authorities reluctant to give up control. With traditional economic analysis failing to explain this turn of events, this book will be invaluable for students, activists and journalists struggling to make sense of the complex issues surrounding Israel's occupation.


Leading writer Boris Kagarlitsky offers an ambitious account of 1000 years of Russian history.

About the Author

Shir Hiver holds an MA in History and Philosophy of Sciences and Ideas at Tel-Aviv University. He works with the Alternative Information Centre in Jerusalem as an Economic Researcher with whom he has written pamphlets on the economy under occupation, a number of which have been translated.
