Creating The Palestinian State: A Strategy For Peace

By Jerome M. Segal
Lawrence Hill, 1989
192 pp. $18.95

A proposal by a Jewish American academic that is "essentially a plan of action" in which the Palestinians would take an initiating and central role in bringing peace to the Middle East. Looking toward a two-state solution, the plan calls for a Palestinian declaration of independence, the building of living structures of statehood in the West Bank and Gaza, and the mobilization of other forces, local and international, that will ultimately bring about Israeli withdrawal and negotiation of a final settlement. It is not as fanciful as it might seem and has some practical suggestions that have already had echoes in the region and could shake up conventional thinking on both sides.
