The Palestinians: In Search of a Just Peace by Cheryl A. Rubenberg
The Palestinians: In Search of a Just Peace is a forceful, penetrating critique of the Oslo accords and their devastating aftermath. Rubenberg describes the severe deprivation that Palestinians struggle with on a daily basis, and the sense of injustice they feel. She shows how Israeli policies have eroded the Palestinian commitment to the peace process, how U.S. intervention has affected the region, and how pervasive corruption within the PA has played a role. Peace, she concludes, depends on unlikely shifts of policy and objectives on all sides.
