Second Edition - December 1996

Focusing on recent changes in political thinking and practice in the Palestinian Territories, this research study proposes and analyses seven principle trends: from ideological purity to pragmatism; from violent to non-violent forms of struggle; the growing prominence of Islam among political forces; the diminishing status of the PLO; the relative empowerment of the local political leadership; the revival of Jordan's political role; and a retreat from broader social change.
