The Palestinians face a unique challenge to their national security as a people under occupation and in exile across the Middle East and beyond. This volume is the first of its kind to address security issues from a Palestinian perspective, with or without a two-state solution to the conflict with Israel. The authors break new ground in focusing on Palestinian national needs as well as the means to defend the Palestinian people wherever they may be. The book's ultimate objective is to lay the foundations for a formal non-offensive Palestinian national security doctrine. It will be essential reading for policymakers, experts, and the media in the Middle East as well as interested parties in the international community.
