Written by Gilead Sher, the Israeli Chief of Staff during the tumultuous 1999-2001 peace negotiations, this book gives an overview of the Israel-Palestine conflict, examining the core issues of contention, the various 'players' and the possible solutions formulated during the peace process effort.
Delivering a comprehensive fast paced description and analysis of the Middle East peace process, the book sheds new light on the complicated and circuitous negotiations held between the Israelis, Palestinians, Egyptians, Americans and numerous other intermediaries. Sher presents concise contextual background and insightful analysis of the political, economic, social and cultural reasons that led to the breakdown of the process and the consequent eruption of bloody violence.
A bestseller in Israel, "The" "Israeli-Palestinian Peace Negotiations 1999-2001" has been praised by critics and embraced by readers on all sides of the political spectrum. The former Prime Minister Ehud Barak hailed it as 'The best book there is or ever will be on the process.' Contributing a new dimension to the current literature on the Middle East peace process, the book provides a fresh understanding of the link between the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the current global threats of Islamic fanaticism and international terrorism.
