The Emergence Of A Binational Israel: The Second Republic In The Making
Edited by Ilan Peleg and Ofira Seliktar
Westview Press, 1989, 243 pp.

The prolonged Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza has created something in the nature of a binational reality even though there is no agreement on what it is or how it could or should develop. While the idea of a binational Israel lacks support anywhere, the topic opens up a field of inquiry into which the authors of this book, American and Israeli scholars, have dared to tread. They have done so with reason and with hope.
