Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace, Second Edition: Patterns, Problems, Possibilities (Indiana Series in Middle East Studies)by Laura Zittrain Eisenberg
Synopses & Reviews
Thoroughly updated and expanded, this new edition of Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace examines the history of recurrent efforts to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict and identifies a pattern of negative negotiating behaviors that seem to repeatedly derail efforts to achieve peace. In a lively and accessible style, Laura Zittrain Eisenberg and Neil Caplan examine eight case studies of recent Arab-Israeli diplomatic encounters, from the Egyptian-Israeli peace of 1979 to the beginning of the Obama administration, in light of the historical record. By measuring contemporary diplomatic episodes against the pattern of counterproductive negotiating habits, this book makes possible a coherent comparison of over sixty years of Arab-Israeli negotiations and gives readers a framework with which to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of peace-making attempts, past, present, and future.
Thoroughly updated and expanded, this new edition of the popular textbook Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace presents an examination of the Arab-Israeli conflict since the Oslo Accords of 1993. Considering the factors that seem to doom peacemaking, authors Laura Zittrain Eisenberg and Neil Caplan identify how, when, and why the process does or does not work and show what must change before the conflict can be resolved diplomatically.
