"Hajjar's book on the Israeli military court system brings together rich ethnographic and historical knowledge with cutting-edge theoretical sophistication."—Austin Sarat, coeditor of Cultural Analysis, Cultural Studies, and the Law

"This book will be the most authoritative source on the subject for years to come."—James Ron, author of Frontiers and Ghettos

"With a stunning display of academic mastery, Hajjar provides a definitive and remarkably balanced account of how Israeli military courts operate in the occupied Palestinian territories. Illuminating this hitherto neglected facet of Israel/Palestine by empirically grounded research is also a major contribution to the wider role and limits of law in situations of acute conflict."—Richard Falk, author of The Great Terror War

"Hajjar's sociological and political achievement is both more focused and more general than her study's historical frame. She shows exactly how the military court system in the Occupied Territories was and is a cruel parody of justice—yet also a faithful representation of Israel's liberal legality."—Stanley Cohen, Martin White Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics
