A great book! 14 Sept. 2001
By Yonatan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
C. Rubin in this book shows the complete developmental process of the Palestinian Authority from a revolutionary movement to the executive branch of the government of a building state.Touches upon crucial points such as the Palestinial Legislative Council,the early institutions of the territory,the PA's relations with it's citizens and especially with the fundamendalist groups etc. I think it's a great book that anyone who wishes to study about Palestine and it's late political developments should read.Of course it requires a background in the area but it is very easily read at the same time.
