The RAND corporation has done itself proud with these publications on how to set up a Palestinian state. Building a Successful Palestinian State, organized into separate chapters on governance, internal security, demographics, economics, water, health, and education, is not, admittedly, an easy read. Bringing together masses of technical data and comprehensive in coverage, it will serve as an invaluable study for those who become directly involved in the state-building process but will serve mainly as a reference work for others. The Arc is a different matter. It offers a model of the most efficient settlement and transportation configuration for this small and densely populated land. It is one of those rare planning documents, enriched with comparative data and meaningful illustrations, that both instructs and persuades. The short booklet of "key findings" provides just that for the other two books.
