The Center for Contemporary Arab Studies is proud to announce the publication of a new volume titled "Palestine and the Palestinians in the 21st Century", edited by Rochelle Davis and Mimi Kirk and published by Indiana University Press. The book comes out of scholarship presented at the 2009 CCAS symposium.
Recent developments in Palestinian political, economic, and social life have resulted in greater insecurity and diminishing confidence in Israel’s willingness to abide by political agreements or the Palestinian leadership’s ability to forge consensus. This volume examines the legacies of the past century, conditions of life in the present, and the possibilities and constraints on prospects for peace and self-determination in the future. These historically grounded essays by leading scholars engage the issues that continue to shape Palestinian society, such as economic development, access to resources, religious transformation, and political movements.
