Shattered Dreams: The Failure of the Peace Process in the Middle East, 1995-2002 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the Clinton administration, it was a goal of historic magnitude: resolving the long, bitter conflict in the Middle East. After years of searching for ways to end the bloodshed, at last there came a moment when it seemed peace was near...And yet, today, Palestinians and Israelis are still killing each other. What went wrong?

As Middle-East Bureau Chief of the French public television network France 2, Charles Enderlin has had unequaled access to leaders and negotiators on all sides. Here he takes the reader step-by-step along the path that began with the hope of agreement but led only to the ultimate collapse of the peace process. The dramatic account moves between the occupied territories and the negotiation table as it follows the emotional shifts in the conflict from the 1995 assassination of Yitzhak Rabin to the years when Benjamin Netanyahu was in power. Along the way, the author reveals details of the secret Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in Sweden, offers new insight into the failure of Israeli-Syrian peace talks, and explains how head injuries sustained by the Jerusalem Chief of Police led to the Al Aqsa intifada.

In a definitive account of the meetings at Camp David in July 2000, Enderlin details what was said between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators brought together by Bill Clinton in the presence of Yasir Arafat and Ehud Barak. With scrupulous concern for accuracy, he presents the talks from his unique vantage point, showing how intransigence, mistakes, and misjudgments on all sides have led to a growing climate of suspicion and to shattered dreams of peace.

This is a book that makes history.

Review:

"Shattered Dreams is a deeply reported and scrupulous account of seven key years in the history of the conflict — from the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November of 1995 to the first election of Ariel Sharon a little over two years ago." Ethan Bronner, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"In his book Shattered Dreams, Enderlin depicts with uncanny insight the major events that make up the pieces of this yet-unfinished mosaic, and portrays with much perceptiveness the cast of characters that played such a key role in shaping the course of events. Shattered Dreams makes a compelling read, providing an in-depth record of a troubled peace process that has still not come to fruition." Shimon Peres, former Prime Minister of Israel

Book News Annotation:

A Jerusalem-based journalist for a French television network offers an insider's view of the collapse of the Middle East peace process based on his access to leaders and negotiators on all sides. Beginning with the 1995 assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, Enderlin describes the action of the peace process and reconstructs conversations between leaders and diplomats using taped interviews and participants' notes. Chapters detail the secret Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in Sweden, the failed Israeli-Syrian peace talks, and conversations between negotiators and President Bill Clinton at the July 2000 meetings at Camp David. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Includes bibliographical references (p. 423-424) and index.

About the Author

Charles Enderlin has been the Bureau Chief for France 2 since 1990. Among his many journalistic publication credits, he is the author of a biography of Yitzhak Shamir (Oban, Paris, 1991) and Paix ou Guerres, a history of Israeli-Arab secret negotiations (Stock, Paris, 1997). When Shattered Dreams was first published in France (Le reve brise, Fayard, Paris, 2002), was an immediate bestseller. It became the basis for a television documentary series, which was aired in its American version by Frontline on PBS and in its international versions by TV stations all over the world. The Frontline version, "Shattered Dreams of Peace," won a Peabody award in 2003. He has lived in Jerusalem since 1968.
