Additional Notes

From The Publisher*PRESIDENT CARTER'S COURAGEOUS ASSESSMENT OF WHAT MUST BE DONE TO BRING PERMANENT PEACE TO ISRAEL WITH DIGNITY AND JUSTICE TO PALESTINE
From The Publisher*Carter, who as president negotiated peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs, most recently as an observer in the Palestinian elections of 2005 and 2006. Now he follows his #1 New York Times best-seller Our Endangered Values by sharing his intimate knowledge of the regions history, addressing sensitive issues many American officials avoid and prescribing steps that will enable Israel and Palestine to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism. Now in paper. 288 pp.
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"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
Review Quote*"This is a must-read for anyone desiring to understand the Middle East problems."

-- Dennis Lythgoe, The Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City)
Review Quote*"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)
