This book provides a comprehensive overview of Palestine through an examination of political history, contemporary politics, economics and engagement in international relations.

Focussing on Palestine through the lens of nation-statehood, this book documents the unrealised quest for sovereignty and independence, fragmentation of the nation across multiple borders, the related prominence of a large and diverse diaspora, and the physical and political division of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It examines the limitations besetting Palestinian economic development and goes on to analyse Palestine’s international relations both within, and without, the Middle East. Aiming to convey the continuity, resilience and achievements of the Palestinian nation propelling the case for self-determination, Palestine explores the divisions, failings and obstacles attending that struggle.

Palestine’s recently upgraded status to non-member, observer state at the UN General Assembly in 2012 renders Palestine a highly topical case study and essential reading for policy-makers, journalists and students with an interest in Middle East politics and international relations.
