Since winning the majority in the Palestinian legislative council in 2006 and seizing power in Gaza in 2007, Hamas’ location in power has posed a serious challenge to its ability to govern without sacrificing its ideological positions. Various factors such as the obligations of governance, regional polarization, the struggle for power against Fatah, the international environment, and the Israeli occupation have affected their governance.

Hamas in Power: The Question of Transformation discusses the changes in Hamas’ stance towards the borders of the Palestinian statehood (Two States Solution), the armed resistance, and the peace process. It also attempts to explain Hamas’ perceptions of these issues after assuming power and becoming a government. Covering key topics such as peace, power, governance, and ideology, this reference work is ideal for policymakers, government officials, diplomats, researchers, scholars, academicians, practitioners, instructors, and students.
