About this item
This critical analysis of internal Palestinian politics in the West Bank traces the re-emergence of the Palestinian Authorityâ€™s established elite in the aftermath of the failed unity government and examines the main security and economic agendas pursued by them during that period. Based on extensive field research interviews and participant observation undertaken across several sites in Nablus and the surrounding area it provides a â€œbottom-upâ€ interpretation of the Palestinian Authorityâ€™s agenda and challenges the popular interpretation that its governance represents the only realistic path to Palestinian independence. As the first major account of the Palestinian Authorityâ€™s political agenda since the collapse of the unity government this book offers a unique explanation for the failure to bring a Palestinian state into being and challenges assumptions within the existing literature by addressing the apparent incoherence between mainstream debates on Palestine and the reality of conditions there.
