Synopses & Reviews
President Carters challenging and provocative assessment of what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel with dignity and justice for Palestinians--and one of the most important books of the year--is now available in paperback.
"This is a must-read for anyone desiring to understand the Middle East problems."
-- Dennis Lythgoe, The Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City)
"A provocative and all too accurate diagnosis of why the Israeli-Palestinian impasse still festers twenty-five years after [Carter] left the White House....Timely and refreshing for its candor."
-- Philip C. Wilcox, Jr., National Catholic Reporter
"Takes dead aim at what is the most pressing international affairs and national security issue of our times....Mr. Carter brings to the table a unique credibility."
-- Dan Simpson, The Toledo Blade (Ohio)
"This book offers a historical overview in the form of a personal memoir....Carter may thus be said to be both a source for the historian and himself a historian of the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation. This little book merits a reading on both counts."
-- L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs
