Despite its guerrilla image, it is diplomacy that characterizes the PLO's place in world politics. In eight essays, analysts of the Middle East explore the benefits and liabilities of the PLO's international ties. Those ties reveal much about the organization's behavior, effectiveness, goals and limitations. There is also an examination of the complexities of PLO finances, and a discussion of the representativeness of the PLO for Palestinians in the occupied territories. With an extensive bibliography and a list of PLO diplomatic posts around the world. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
