The West Bank and Gaza: Toward the Making of a Palestinian State, by Emile A. Nakhleh, examines the municipal and social institutions in the West Bank and Gaza, the services these institutions provide, and the role they will play in a postoccupation transitional regime. These institutions are seen as capable of dealing with many issues that are essentially nonpolitical, including population relocation, housing, municipal authority, health, education, welfare services, agriculture, and public services.
During the field research for this study, the author interviewed representatives of West Bank and Gaza political and social elites. He concluded that the cooperation of Palestinian leaders is essential to any transitional regime, and to obtain this cooperation two fundamental conditions must be met: termination of the Israeli military occupation and clear recognition by the powers involved of the ultimate right of the Palestinians to self-determination.
Emile A. Nakhleh is professor of political science and chairperson of the department of history and political science at Mount St. Mary’s College, Emmitsburg, Maryland. In 1977 he taught at Birzeit University in the West Bank.
