Abstract

A Book Review for: The Case for Palestine: An International Law Perspective by John Quigley

Taken from review:

John Quigley aptly calls it “the longest-standing confl ict in the history of the United Nations”—the apparently intractable Middle East conflict that continues to foster violence and instability, not only in the region, but around the world. But Quigley’s revised and updated The Case for Palestine: An International Law Perspective, in clear language and persuasive legal argument, draws the conclusion that it is not unsolvable. Far from an intractable problem, Quigley argues, solving the Israel-Palestine confl ict in a way that leads to a just and lasting peace is not a diffi cult proposition. A just and lasting solution, however, would have to be based on the recognized rights of those who live there, rather than driven by the power politics that continue to erode the possibility of permanent peace.
