Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A clear, trenchant book on a topic of enormous importance . . . a courageous plunge into boiling waters. If The One-State Solution helps propel forward a debate that has hardly begun in this country it will have performed a signal scholarly and political function."

---Tony Judt, New York University

". . . a pioneering text. . . . [A]s such it will take pride of place in a brewing debate."

---Gary Sussman, Tel Aviv University

"The words ‘The One-State Solution' seem to strike dread, at the least, or terror, at the most, in any established, institutional, or mainstream discourse having to do with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. . . . It therefore takes great courage---and I use the word literally---to title explicitly a book under that infamous label. . . . Virginia Tilley is blessed with such courage and complements it with the requisite academic erudition. . . . Weaving her way through the historical progression of Zionism and through late 20th century and current international and Middle Eastern politics, she shows how the additional, pernicious state of settlement expansion (abetted by other massive human rights violations that go with the occupation) has brought us to the point where only a one-state solution can provide a just peace (and not just a state of conflict management going under the misnomer of peace)."

--- Anat Biletsky, Middle East Journal

Recent events have once more put the Israeli-Palestinian issue on the front page. After decades of failed peace initiatives, the prospect of reconciliation is in the air yet again as the principal actors maneuver to end the conflict and---the world hopes---bring peace to the region. A one-state solution is a way toward that peace and needs serious, renewed consideration.

The One-State Solution explains how Israeli settlements have encroached on the occupied territory of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to such an extent that any Palestinian state in those areas is unworkable. And it reveals the irreversible impact of Israel's settlement grid by summarizing its physical, demographic, financial, and political dimensions.

Virginia Tilley elucidates why we should assume that this grid will not be withdrawn---or its expansion reversed---by reviewing the role of the key political actors: the Israeli government, the United States, the Arab states, and the European Union.

Finally, Tilley focuses on the daunting obstacles to a one-state solution---including major revision of the Zionist dream but also Palestinian and other regional resistance---and offers some ideas about how those obstacles might be addressed.

Virginia Tilley is Chief Research Specialist in the Democracy and Governance Division of the Human Resources Council in Cape Town, South Africa.

Book News Annotation:

The Israeli "security fence" (or "apartheid wall" in the formulation of critics) carving the West Bank into isolated cantonments and the de facto integration of the Israeli and Palestinian economies, among other "facts on the ground" have effectively killed off the possibility that the two-state solution long advocated as a solution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict can possibly lead to long term peace and security in the Middle East, argues Tilley (political science, Hobart and William Smith Colleges). She views a one-state plan as the only remaining option. Recognizing the major political impediments such a plan faces, she tries to show the obstacles as surmountable with discussion of what a single democratic state might actually look like and a critical questioning of the political assumptions of modern Zionism.

Synopsis:

A piercing analysis of the Israel-PLO impasse and a sensitive proposal for a way out

Synopsis:

“A clear, trenchant book on a topic of enormous importance... Overall this is a courageous plunge

into boiling waters. If it helps propel forward a debate that has hardly begun in this country it will

have performed a signal scholarly and political function.”

—Tony Judt, New York University

“. . . a pioneering text. . . . [A]s such it will take pride of place in a brewing debate.”

—Gary Sussman, Tel Aviv University

The One-State Solution demonstrates that Israeli settlements have already encroached on the occupied territory of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the extent that any Palestinian state in those areas is unviable. It reveals the irreversible impact of Israels settlement grid by summarizing its physical, demographic, financial, and political dimensions. Virginia Tilley explains why we should assume that this grid will not be withdrawn—or its expansion reversed—by reviewing the

role of the key political actors: the Israeli government, the United States, the Arab states, and the European Union. Finally, the book addresses the daunting obstacles to a one-state solution—including major revision of the Zionist dream but also Palestinian and other regional resistance—and offers some ideas about how those obstacles might be addressed.
