Models of Autonomy
Models of Autonomy
Edited by Yoram Dinstein
Transaction Books, 1981, 303 pp

The genesis of this book was an effort to analyze cases of autonomy which might suggest elements helpful to the Israeli-Egyptian negotiations under the Camp David accords. The models, described by specialists from Israel and Western countries, range from colonial America to South Tyrol and Puerto Rico, plus several examples where autonomy did not work or is yet to be attained. The case histories are instructive, although their usefulness in the current negotiations on the West Bank and Gaza is not readily apparent.
