Anyone seriously interested in the current Arab-Israeli peace negotiations would do well to consult this report. The political, economic and security issues that would have to be addressed during an interim period of Palestinian self-government are discussed intelligently and in detail. As with any committee product, some of the hard issues tend to be glossed over; and some judgments, such as the need for an election to ratify the results of negotiations, seem off the mark. Also missing is a sense of priority among the many issues discussed. Which are truly essential for the effective working of Palestinian self-government, and which are secondary? Still, this is a very useful volume to have as a reference as the negotiating process unfolds.
