Intifada: Palestine At The Crossroads

Edited by Jamal R. Nassar and Roger Heacock
Praeger, 1990
347 pp. $55.00

The theme is the struggle for Palestinian national liberation from "colonial" rule, of which the uprising since December 1987 is seen as the latest and most powerful phase. Most of the contributors are professionals in the occupied territories (in sociology, economics, political science, public health, etc.), and they write as scholars and firsthand observers as well as supporters of the intifada. There is much interesting material on the respective roles of villagers, urban workers, the merchant class and Palestinian women, as well as on the competing secular and Islamic wings of the nationalist movement.
