Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Palestinian national movement reached a dead-end and came close to disintegration at the beginning of the present century. The struggle for power after the death of Yasser Arafat in 2004 signaled the end of a path toward statehood prepared by the Oslo Accords a decade before. The reasons for the failure of the movement are deeply rooted in modern Palestinian history. As'ad Ghanem analyzes the internal and external events that unfolded as the Palestinian national movement became a "failed national movement," marked by internecine struggle and collapse, the failure to secure establishment of a separate state and achieve a stable peace with Israel, and the movement's declining stature within the Arab world and the international community.

About the Author

As'ad Ghanem is Senior Lecturer in the School of Political Science, University of Haifa. He is author of The Palestinian Arab Minority in Israel: A Political Study and The Palestinian Regime: A "Partial Democracy."
