An interesting look at the Palestinian national movement from the British mandate after WWI through the present from the Palestinian perspective. Pearlman's Organizational Mediation Theory of Protest is the lens through which the reader views the last 100 years of the Palestinian national movement. This book is full of examples of how the degree of organization in a movement is an important factor in its ability to effectively utilize non-violent resistance from the Palestinian national movement, South Africa and Ireland. Well researched and full of first person examples, particularly from the period of the Second Intifada, I particularly enjoyed the historical perspective on the Palestinian national movement.
