Abstract

Palestine has yet to find her place on the world’s map as an independent, sovereign state. Throughout much of its history, Palestine—also known as the Holy Land because it is sacred to the three main monotheistic faiths—has been conquered, occupied and ruled over by foreign entities. In this regard, Palestine shares the fate of many countries around the globe. However, it is Palestine’s recent history that makes it somewhat unique from other country studies contained in this book. For, unlike other countries with established borders, economies, institutions, and even mass media, Palestine is still seeking independence and statehood. The Palestinians’ quest for statehood is at the heart of the IsraeliPalestinian conflict that has consumed the Middle East and much of the world.
