Hi all,

I've just submitted for proofing "The Iron Cage: The Story of the
Palestinian Struggle for Statehood" by Rashid Khalidi. 

Its been read through, errors corrected, headers stripped, page
numbers/chapter titles protected, text/section headings formatted. 288
Lots of proper names and non-English words.

Khalidi (Arab studies, Columbia U. ) seeks to explain why the Palestinians
failed to achieve independence prior to 1948, the date of the establishment
of Israel.  Rather than "compare the incomparable"--the Palestinians and the
Zionist movement--he provides thematically comparisons of the Palestinians
to other Arab societies at analogous stages of development.  His major
themes include the failure of the Palestinians to successfully challenge the
legal structure of the mandatory regime, which was consciously designed to
prevent Palestinian self-government; the role of British-created religious
structures in co-opting Palestinian elites; and the structural failures of
the revolt of 1936-39.
