The Gaza Strip: The Political Economy of De-development
Roy (Harvard U.) analyzes the causes and impact of the various political and economic policies introduced into the Gaza Strip, focusing on those occurring during the Israeli occupation. Arguing that political concerns have hindered the area's economic development, resulting in the region's de-development, she examines the Gulf war, the Gaza-Jericho Agreement, and Arab and PLO policies, and presents data on the agricultural, industrial, and service sectors.
