Peace Process: American Diplomacy and the Arab-Israeli Conflict Since 1967
At various times in recent years, the Arab-Israeli conflict has seemed to be moving toward resolution, propelled forward by impressive acts of statesmanship. At other moments, the parties to the conflict seem hopelessly mired in fear and violence, unable to bridge the gaps that separate them. One message of Peace Process is that the United States has had, and will continue to have, a crucial role in helping Israel and her Arab neighbors reach peace. If American presidents play their role with skill, they can make a lasting contribution. But just as likely, they may misread the realities of the Middle East and add to the impasse by their own errors.
This new edition of Peace Process brings the story up to date through the crucial Israeli election of May 1999. Two new chapters on the Clinton Administration have been added. The text has been streamlined and revised and new sources have been consulted, resulting in a compact, authoritative, and timely version of this classic study of American diplomacy in the Middle East. Related documentary material is available on easily accessible Web sites that will be kept current for students and scholars.
