In his acknowledgements, Neve Gordon tells of a meeting in Jerusalem at which the “Humanitarian Action in Catastrophe” group identified an “urgent need to theorize Israel's occupation” (xiii). The result is this book, Israel's Occupation. It is an impressive and important achievement, and one to which future analysts will be obliged to refer.
