Editorial Reviews

`In total, Watson's analysis is extremely well-reasoned. His arguments proceed logically to the conclusion that the Oslo Accords are legally binding instruments of international law, and that they are an important milestone in progress towards Middle Eastern peace.'D. Vogel, Harvard International Law Journal
