Palestine: Une Économie de Résistance en Cisjordanie et a Gaza
Palestine: Une Économie de Résistance en Cisjordanie et a Gaza
By Antoine Mansour
L'Harmattan, 1983, 229 pp

A Palestinian economist characterizes Israeli strategy in the occupied territories as one of destruction (of Arab economic institutions), integration (into the Israeli economy), and population change (bringing in Jews and forcing out Arabs). He urges an Arab counter-strategy of economic resistance as the only way, with necessary political backing, to maintain the Arab character of those territories. The book has a clear political message but is no mere tract, for the economic research and analysis are highly professional and well presented.
