The Palestinians: New Directions

Edited by Michael C. Hudson
Center for Contemporary Arab Studies, Georgetown University, 1990
236 pp. $29.95

The first part of the book, by Palestinian scholars, looks at the intifada and its effects in the occupied territories, covering much the same ground (and with some of the same authors) as does Intifada: Palestine at the Crossroads (noted in Foreign Affairs, Fall 1990). The second part, on the policies of outside states, includes a thoughtful essay by the editor on U.S. policy, plus brief and less useful contributions from the U.S.S.R., Israel and Jordan. The final section sets out the possible outline of a two-state solution. In all, the volume provides a good picture of present prospects as seen by those concerned for both Palestinian rights and peaceful settlement.
