From coexistence to conquest

From coexistence to conquest

Pluto Pr | June 1, 2009 | 416 pages

The Palestine-Israel conflict often raises questions about international law, related to both Israel's legitimacy and violent Palestinian resistance to occupation. This book is the first of its kind to study the international legal methods used to create Israel, shedding light on the conflict as it exists today.Kattan shows that international law was both flouted and manipulated in order to create a Jewish homeland in 1948 and that this disregard for international legality caused much of the dispute and violence that exists today. The period of the British Mandate is analysed very closely, revealing the lobbying tactics that were dressed up as legal imperative and used to deny Palestinians rights to land and self-determination.This revealing and painstakingly researched book is a must for students of international law and anyone interested in the origins of the long-running Arab-Israeli conflict.
