Revolution Until Victory?

The Politics and History of the PLO

Barry Rubin

ISBN 9780674768048

Publication date: 09/01/1996

The Palestine Liberation Organization is now almost a government in Gaza and the West Bank. In this in-depth account of its ideology, strategy, and tactics, its relationship to other Arab states, and its confrontations with Israel, Barry Rubin documents how the PLO was transformed from revolutionary organization into the administrator of its own territory.


  • As a concise documentary work, [this book] elegantly and thoroughly chronicles the history of the PLO, noting the ideological and operative distinctions between its principal component, Fatah, and other more radical branches.

    —David B. Green, New York Times Book Review


  • Barry Rubin was Deputy Director of the Begin–Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and Executive Editor of MERIA: The Middle East Review of International Affairs.
