An original contribution to the debate, this book deserves the close attention of policymakers and the informed public.Publishers Weekly

There is nothing in the literature comparable to what Mark Heller has done… His analysis is informed by a deep firsthand knowledge of Palestinian and Israeli societies, and a thorough grounding in the relevant historical, geographic, strategic, and military literature. He carries out his inquiry with logic, admirable thoroughness, and enviable clarity of style and economy of words.—Nadav Safran, author of Israel—The Embattled Ally

A superb analysis of the alternative ways of dealing with the Palestinian issue… It is, all in all, a model of how to do a sophisticated policy analysis of a highly complex political–security issue.—Samuel P. Huntington, Harvard University

Heller is one of the few researchers who has approached the Palestinians in a dispassionate and scholarly fashion. The book is an important addition to any discourse on the problems of the Middle East, not only because of its rich sources (including actual interviews in the West Bank), but also because of Heller’s insightful analysis and lucid presentation.—Joel S. Migdal, University of Washington
