Abstract

This hefty volume is a compilation of articles on international law aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. The articles have all been published previously in legal journals, including leading journals on international law. The compilation is a brief for a particular view and it is unabashedly partisan, but that by itself is not necessarily to the detriment of an academic book. Many books that have become seminal treatises have become so because they attempted to introduce or promote a particular world or legal view. However, the title, the preface and the introduction do not explicitly state that the book represents only one view and I believe that this reticence is a serious shortcoming of the book. Admittedly, the reference in the title to Palestine and the absence of a reference in the title to Israel suggests the direction the book takes, but this should have been explicitly stated.
