In method and madness, Norman Finkelstein's close examination of Israel’s motives reveals a state whose repeated recourse to savage war is far from irrational.

Rather, Israel's attacks have been designed to sabotage the possibility of a compromise with the Palestinians, even on terms that are favourable to it. a strategy of mass non-violent protest might, he contends, hold more promise for a Palestinian victory than military resistance, however brave.
