The Impossibility of Palestine: History, Geography, and the Road Ahead

The “two-state solution” is the official policy of Israel, the United States, the United Nations, and the Palestinian Authority alike. However, international relations scholar Mehran Kamrava argues that Israel’s “state-building” process has never risen above the level of municipal governance, and its goal has never been Palestinian independence. He explains that a coherent Palestinian state has already been rendered an impossibility, and to move forward, Palestine must redefine its present predicament and future aspirations. The text is based on detailed fieldwork, exhaustive scholarship, and an in-depth examination of historical sources.
