Hamas Contained: The Rise and Pacification of Palestinian Resistance

Dr. Baconi discusses his new book Hamas Contained: The Rise and Pacification of Palestinian Resistance (Stanford University Press, 2018). The book offers the first thirty-year history of the group, drawing on interviews with organization leaders and publications from the group. It maps Hamas's transition from fringe military resistance towards governance and shows how, under Israel's approach of managing rather than resolving the conflict, Hamas's demand for Palestinian sovereignty has effectively been neutralized by its containment in Gaza.
