What are the prospects for peace between Israel and Palestine? What impact will the political rise of HAMAS have in the post-Oslo era? In this collection of 36 articles from journalists, scholars and activists on both sides, many of the answers to these questions are themselves formed of questions. Under the general discussion of the political economy of peace, what are the limits to the pax Americana? What impact does the neo-liberal welfare economy of Israel have on the peace process? Within Palestine, what comes from Palestinian authority and Israeli rule? What about gender and social citizenship in the Palestinian women's movement? What about the refugees? What impact does militarism, citizenship and struggle have on Israel? What are the cultural points of contact? Finally, will rebellion cease when Palestine is no longer occupied?
