This book contradicts the dominant myth that incompetent, corrupt, and uncompromising Palestinian decision-makers are responsible for the lasting stalemate in the Middle-East Peace Process. It highlights recent political developments in Palestine that fundamentally redefine important parameters of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Contrary to public perception, new political trends in the Palestinian Territories bolster prospects for the realisation of Palestinian national aspirations. Michael Bröning identifies key indicators which fundamentally question dominant Israeli narratives and pose an unprecedented strategic challenge to the Israeli leadership. These include the re-invention of Hamas, the reform of the Fatah movement, Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s state-building efforts and the surge of non-violent resistance against Israel.

This persuasive book forces us to reconsider the perceived wisdom that the Palestinians are powerless to influence events as they struggle for peace.

From the Back Cover:

"A lucid analysis of Palestinian politics and much needed food for thought on how to engage
Hamas. A must-read for anyone interested in solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."
(Gernot Erler, Minister of State in the German Federal Foreign Office 2005-2009)

"Michael Bröning provides a much needed antidote to mainstream writing. He
methodically sketches the arc of the Palestinian national movement in the Occupied Territories as it transforms itself from Fatah's secular nationalist approach to Hamas's Islamist
nationalism. This is a highly valuable book that no student of Palestinian history or the Arab-
Israeli conflict can afford to ignore."
(Joost R. Hiltermann, Deputy Program Director Middle East and North Africa, International
Crisis Group, Washington DC)

"Bröning's lucid text on Palestinian affairs within the context of the continuing Israeli
occupation is timely and immensely needed. This book is a must-read for those who want to
comprehend the Israeli/Palestinian elephant in its totality, rather than be misled by a blind grasp of just the trunk, an ear, or the tail."
(Khaled Hroub, University of Cambridge)

"Michael Bröning has brilliantly described current changes and new perspectives
emerging in the Palestinian landscape. At the same time, he has captured the stakes
and the challenges of Palestinian nonviolent resistance."
(Mustafa Barghouthi, Secretary General of Palestinian National Initiative, Ramallah)
