Publisher's Summary

George Mitchell knows how to bring peace to troubled regions. He was the primary architect of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement for peace in Northern Ireland. But when he served as US special envoy for Middle East peace from 2009 to 2011 - working to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - diplomacy did not prevail. Now, for the first time, Mitchell offers his insider account of how the Israelis and the Palestinians have progressed (and regressed) in their negotiations through the years and outlines the specific concessions each side must make to finally achieve lasting peace. This unflinching look at why the peace process has failed and what must happen for it to succeed is an important, essential, and valuable work.

Critic Reviews

Excellent learning experience of a complex problem

Excellent discussion of history and the nuance of the issues that prevents negotiation and peace between Palestinians and Israelis. George Mitchell provides some interesting suggestions for solutions to the security, borders, refugee and settlements in the West Bank issues that form the core of a peace plan. The obstacles seem insurmountable but Mitchell gives us hope that peace is possible.
