I'm supposed to do a map of the West Bank for an academic publisher, showing the new barrier. I thought it might be useful to have an aerial photo as the background, to help differentiate urban areas from other land.

Does anyone have leads on who might sell me aerial or satellite imagery that's fairly recent?

Have you checked terraserver? I have bought decent and recent satellite imagery there before (of a city in a developing country). Not good enough for any quantitative analysis, but definately ok for visual guidance and backdrop. And not too expensive!

How about Google Earth/Maps and MSN what-ever-it-is-called-today? (visual encarta live map earth?)
(and yahoo's and ask.com etc equivalent service)

Depending on the scale and size of your map and what you mean by recent there are probably numerous sattelite images that would be suitable from high resolution platforms such as Quickbird or Ikonos. But it may be that a pan sharpened Landsat image would also be suitable.
