This book is a study on the policy of administrative detention and how it is used by the Israeli occupation as a tool for oppression and torture against Palestinian prisoners and their families, within the colonial context in Palestine. The book discusses the historical context of the administrative detention policy since the beginning of the occupation, its impact on detainees and their families, and the unsubstantial role of administrative detention courts. It portrays how the Palestinians have confronted this type of detention over the years, through individual strikes and steps to boycott military courts. It also addresses the problems related to boycotting the occupation courts and contends that it is important to take a unified and comprehensive stance towards this boycott, given that the judicial system is closely connected to the colonial authority and its continuous intrusion.
