Summary
"Palestine is fast disappearing - fulfilling the objectives of Israel's founding fathers. Over many decades, Israel has developed and refined policies to disperse, imprison and impoverish the Palestinian people, in a relentless effort to destroy them as a nation. It has industrialised Palestinian despair through ever more sophisticated systems of curfews, checkpoints, walls, permits and land grabs. It has transformed the West Bank and Gaza into laboratories for testing the infrastructure of confinement, creating a lucrative 'defence' industry by pioneering the technologies needed for urban warfare, crowd control and collective punishment. Leading journalist Jonathan Cook examines the many different guises in which these experiments on the Palestinians are being carried out. He also exposes the dismal failure of the Israeli left, human rights organisations and the global media to hold Israel to account. This is a powerful and controversial analysis of one of the most enduring and entrenched conflicts in contemporary world politics." -- Back cover
