Failing Peace: Gaza and the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

by Sara Roy - £24.99  Pluto Press (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745322346 | ISBN 10: 0745322344

This book represents 20 years of research, fieldwork and analysis on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and the impact of Israeli occupation.
 
Discussion of Israeli policy toward Palestinians is often regarded as a taboo subject, with the result that few people - especially in the U.S. - understand the origins and consequences of the conflict. Roy's book provides an indispensable context for understanding why the situation remains so intractable. The focus of Roy's work is the Gaza Strip, an area that remains consistently neglected and misunderstood despite its political centrality. Drawing on more than two thousand interviews and extensive first-hand experience, Roy chronicles the impact of Israeli occupation in Palestine over nearly a generation.
 
Exploring the devastating consequences of socio-economic and political decline, this is a unique and powerful account of the reality of life in the West Bank and Gaza. Written by one of the world's foremost scholars of the region, it offers an unrivalled breadth of scholarship and insight.
