These essays come from a conference organized to draw attention to legal problems arising from the Israeli occupation of the West Bank. Contributors include internationally-renowned experts on international and human rights law as well as a number of Palestinian lawyers actively engaged in promoting the interests of indigenous Palestinians. This book makes an important contribution to the legal literature on the situation in the Occupied Territories, covering such issues as the administration of occupied territory in international law, the right to form trade unions under military rule, taxation and financial administration, land and water resources, and defense and enforcement of human rights in occupied territories.

`The standard of papers in this important book is uniformly high. It is accessible to the lay reader and deserves to be read widely.' Middle East International `This is a well-produced and well edited account of a major issue of our time, an essential reference on the problem of long-term occupation of territory, and a detailed account of the occupation with which it deals. It is strongly recommended.' The British Year Book of International Law 'This work fills the virtual void in book-length treatment of human rights and military occupation in this particular context. The Editor's lengthy bibliography promotes access to the other relevant sources.' ASIL Newsletter
