Palestine and the Palestinians in the 21st Century (Indiana University Press, 2013) is a volume edited by CCAS Associate Professor Rochelle Davis and former CCAS editor Mimi Kirk, and written by leading scholars on various dimensions of the ongoing conflict in Palestine. 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.
