This book is a must for those who want to know the context and core issues of why Gaza is the way it is. Gaza now is suffering under a 6-year blockade where little or no humanitarian aid can come through. The air space, the coastal waters, movement is controlled by Israel. Although Israel disengaged from Gaza in 2005, it still maintains an occupation.
When Palestinian sympathizers like Roy dismiss Yasir Arafat as a sell-out for having signed the DoP, it invariably prompts the thought that they are less interested in the welfare of Palestinians than with the opportunity to vent spleen at the Jewish state. Its academic trappings aside, this would seem to a be a book whose purpose first and last is to discredit Israel.
