In 2014, distinguished jurist Richard Falk completed his six-year term as UN Special Rapporteur on occupied Palestine. With Palestine: The Legitimacy of Hope, he powerfully illuminates the transformation of the Palestinians' struggle over recent years into one for legitimacy, similar to that pursued by the great anti-colonial movements of the twentieth century. Throughout the information-packed essays collected in this book, Falk discerns many signs of hope that the Palestinian people can harness the growing international attention and solidarity their struggle has achieved and break free of the apartheid and occupation that they have long endured.This is a companion volume to Falk's Chaos and Counterrevolution: After the Arab Spring (Just World Books, 2015.)
