Product Overview

From the Publisher:
"In The Missing Peace, his inside story of the Middle East peace process, Dennis Ross recounts the search for enduring peace in that troubled region with unprecedented candor and insight." "As the chief Middle East peace negotiator for both George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Ross came to be the lone figure respected by all parties to the negotiations: Democrats and Republicans, Palestinians and Israelis, prime ministers and ordinary people of the streets of Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Washington, D.C." "Ross tells the story of the peace process from 1988, when he joined the State Department under James Baker, up to the collapse of negotiations in the last days of the Clinton administration - an outcome that led Palestinians to commence a grisly "second Intifada" and Israel to wage a punishing military offensive in the West Bank and Gaza." He takes us behind the scenes to see high-stakes diplomacy as it is actually conducted, recounting the round-the-clock summit meetings and secret negotiations, the stalemates and broken promises. And he explains the issues at the heart of the struggle for peace: border disputes, Israeli security, the Palestinian "right of return," and the status of Jerusalem. The Missing Peace explains why Middle East peace remains so elusive.

Praise
"[An] important, voluminous and keenly balanced memoir of 12 years as the central figure of American Middle East peace policies."
"THE MISSING PEACE is a comprehensive and fascinating memoir about the trials and tribulations of an American peace processor....Ross...deserves special commendation for producing such a revealing record of these efforts."
"Ross virtually WAS the process....Ross attended every significant meeting; he has a prodigious memory and his note-taking was legendary. All of which makes his book important to read, his factual account difficult to dispute, and his conclusions all the more deserving of close scrutiny."
"[H]ere is Dennis Ross...with a full eight hundred pages on these events, and they are described with profuse detail, keen insight, and barely concealed passion. [Ross's book will] serve scholars of the Arab-Israeli conflict as a major source of information and analysis. It is certainly the most detailed and comprehensive exposition of the course of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, starting with the Madrid Conference of 1991 and ending with the stalemate in which we now find ourselves."
From the Publisher
Annotation Selected by President Clinton to lead the United States team in the difficult effort to broker a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, Dennis Ross was the central figure in the day-to-day meetings and general strategy of a decade-long effort that ultimately fell apart. In THE MISSING PEACE, Ross offers his insider account of the road from Madrid to Oslo, with portraits of the major players such as Clinton, Netanyahu, Barak, Arafat, and others, and he offers his analysis of the high-stakes gamesmanship by all sides. A New York Times Notable Book for 2004.
Editors Note The respected ambassador and chief Middle East negotiator in both the Clinton and Bush administrations offers a sober, candid assessment of the peace process from 1988 to the present, covering Camp David, Oslo, Geneva, and Egypt; the assassination of Yitzak Rabin; and much, much more.
