This yearbook, now in its 11th volume, is a primary source of information on significant and topical legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories. It provides, in a single annual volume, not only leading articles on topics of major interest to the international legal community, but also key legislation, court decisions, legal cases, treaties, resolutions, special reports, and other relevant legal material translated from the original Arabic or Hebrew into English. This particular volume is devoted specifically to the question of Palestinian refugees and includes: a comparison of the international legal framework designed to protect refugees with the framework already established for the protection of Palestinian refugees; an examination of the various pieces of legislation enacted to "legally" confiscate Palestinian lands; raising the question as to how the plight of Palestinian refugees may be addressed in the international legal system; legal precedents regarding refugees, including the Dayton accord and UN Resolutions; various agreements signed over the course of the past year; a detailed bibliography of books, monographs and articles; and a comprehensive index. This volume, as with its predecessors, should prove an invaluable source of reference and record on the complex legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories, and will be of prime interest to legal practitioners, researchers, scholars and anyone involved in law, politics, human rights or international relations who has an interest in this region.429pp.

Hambright, K. D.; Ragep, F. J.; Ginat, Joseph
"Water in the Middle East" presents historical and cross-cultural perspectives on water and conflict, prospects for future cooperation in the water arena among Middle Eastern countries, the political economy of water and technical solutions to water shortages in the Jordan Valley, and the relationships among water, agriculture, and environmental sustainability. Through case studies and essays, natural and social scientific water experts from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and the United States examine: The role of water in Middle East conflicts and the possibility of regional solutions to water scarcity requiring cooperation among states; Long-term prospects of various aquifers and other fresh-water sources, including desalination; current and future environmental deterioration of water resources; Breakthroughs and developments increasing regional agricultural productivity, depending less on high-quality waters while turning to lower quality resources, such as recycled and brackish waters; alternatives to current water-usage patterns, particularly with regard to agriculture and the possibility of redirecting water to tourism and other economic sectors. While this book highlights the complexities pertaining to regional water scarcity and inequitable distribution, the contributors offer no definitive conclusions or facile solutions; yet there is a broad consensus that regional solutions to maximize water resources must be pursued even as desalination becomes more viable both from technical/economic standpoints. The continuing deterioration of existing water supplies in terms of quantity and quality mandate that any solution must be achieved within a political/social framework of peace, enlightened economic policies, and the application of technical solutions that take due account of environmental concerns.249pp.

Ottolenghi, Smadar
Since Smadar Ottolenghi first published her detailed analysis of Israel's new arbitration law in 1970, she has remained the unrivalled interpreter of arbitration law in her country, and a tireless theorist of improved arbitral procedure. Virtually every Israeli judgement with regard to arbitration in the last thirty years has drawn on her definitive Hebrew treatise, "Arbitration: Law and Procedure", which has been revised and extended twice, in 1980 and again in 1990. This book is Professor Ottolenghi's own English adaptation of her peerless work, and is in fact the most up-to-date edition, as it includes references to hundreds of judgements and other developments that have occurred in the ten years since the publication of the most recent (third) Hebrew edition. Anyone with the need or opportunity to arbitrate in Israel should find all the details they need, including expert guidance on such important substantive and procedural matters as the following: phrasing the arbitration clause; matters in rem; sole arbitration versus party arbitration; successors to arbitration agreements; settlement of labour disputes under arbitral agreements; The court's involvement in arbitration proceedings; responsibility for arbitrator's remuneration; limitations upon the arbitrator's powers; setting aside an arbitrator's award; effect of international conventions; and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards. To enhance communication between English-speaking readers - lawyers, arbitrators, and other professionals and business people who should find this book immensely useful - and their Israeli correspondents, the paragraph numbering in this edition is identical with that of the third Hebrew Edition. Detailed indexes should add greatly to the book's usefulness by making it easy to find material through several different avenues. 563pp.
