This book is by no means the last word in a debate that has increasingly important implications for future Palestinian state viability. Nor should it be taken as a sophisticated fig leaf for crooked or dubious rent-management practices by the PA today or in the future. Nevertheless, amidst the plethora of international studies and reports and continuing strong media interest in the open book of Palestinian public finances, this new alternative approach merits the serious attention of researchers, policy-makers, and international institutions and greater exposition to Palestinian public opinion.
