Summary

"This text examines the contemporary political geography of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Descriptive in nature, it documents the changes and developments since 1967 as well as the recent disengagement from Gaza. The book is supplemented by numerous maps and covers issues including demography; Jewish settlements; water and natural resources; transport infrastructure; planning; partition plans for Jerusalem; settlement policy; the Separation Fence; and the Palestinian State." "One of the first books to tackle this contentious subject from a geographical rather than a political or historical perspective, this text will be of interest to both undergraduate and graduate students studying the Israel-Palestine conflict."--BOOK JACKET.
