About this book

The volume brings together cutting-edge political economy analyses of the Palestinian people: those living in the occupied territory of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, those living within Israel, and refugees in Arab states. It is a must-read for those who wish to understand the historical origins and contemporary realities that face Palestinians.

Reviews

“In many ways, this book constitutes an invaluable addition to a growing body of literature focusing on the political economy of Palestine and the Palestinians. Overall, it provides an incredibly thorough and well-argued analysis of how macroeconomic structures and government policies have led to the de-development of Palestinians; and it is comprehensive in the breadth of the policy areas covered, from aid and water to transportation and finance.” (Mayssoun Sukarieh, Journal of Palestine Studies, Vol. 145, Winter, 2016)

''Mandy Turner and Omar Shweiki have done a great service to Palestine Studies in putting together this long-overdue critical (anti-colonial) exploration of the political economy of the Palestinian question. This path-breaking and seminal book is a major boost to the research on the ongoing de-development process inflicted upon the Palestinians.'' - Gilbert Achcar, Professor of Development Studies and Chair of the Centre for Palestine Studies at SOAS, University of London

"A rich contribution to the political economy of Palestine, the Palestinian diaspora, and the occupied territories in recent history. Essential for understanding what is happening in the region beyond the political headlines.' - Salim Tamari, Director of the Institute of Palestine Studies and Adjunct Professor at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University

'Although the contributions are all brief, the level of the detail is intense. The occupation is everywhere you look, simply everywhere. And by placing all of these pieces side-by-side, the editors have done important work towards bringing down the analytical geographical separation that inflects both scholarship and practice.' - Kareem Rabie, Harper Schmidt Fellow and Collegiate Assistant Professor, University of Chicago, review in Jadaliyya<

'This is, of course, an academic book on political economy, so it was never going to be the lightest of reads. But, as an edited volume, it does contain a range of voices and more concise expression than a standard monograph might; this also means that it covers a wide range of issues, making it a useful overview for those wanting to understand different aspects of the political economy of Palestine.' - Sarah Irving, Electronic Intifada

'In their efforts to contribute to a decolonial struggle, I applaud the book's authors and editors. The last section of the book is dedicated to the resistance against de-development and the advancement of a decolonial political-economy.' - Mark Muhannad Ayyash, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Mount Royal University, review in SCTIW Review, September 1, 2015
