Product Description


Unique ... [Roy] is humanely rather than only professionally committed in ways that are unmatched by any other non-Palestinian scholar. ... No one has reported more accurately and scrupulously on the economic devastation attendant on the Oslo process. (Edward W. Said)

I warmly recommend this work of urgent witness by one of the world's foremost experts on the de-development of the Gaza's economy, the unraveling of its society and the degradation of its physical environment. Sara Roy's essays combine hard-headed anaylsis and wise prescription with a growing realization that the Oslo process was undermining what little hope there was for a peaceful and more prosperous future. (Roger Owen, A.J.Meyer Professor of Middle East History, Harvard University)
