Author Text to Follow
The first book to bring together American, Israeli and Palestinian negotiators who participated in the summit, as well as experts who prepared the material for the negotiators and academics who specialize in the methodology of peace negotiations, to confront the different versions of what happened at Camp David.
Presents the full version of the controversial prime minister, Ehud Barak.
The Camp David Summit of 2000 was a formative
event in the history of the Israeli–Palestinian relations.
It was the most comprehensive effort ever to resolve a hundred-year
conflict. Yet, it not only ended in failure but was immediately
followed by the eruption of unprecedented violence.
After an message from President Bill Clinton, and introductory chapters by Shimon Shamir, Itamar Rabinovich, Sari Nusseibeh and Martin Indyk, the 27 chapter contributions are divided to: Israeli Negotiators, Palestinian Perspectives, American Participants, the Barak Version and its Critics, the Negotiation Experts, Academic Perspectives, and the Clinton Parameters. The volume concludes with a Political Debate on the way forward.
This book is essential reading for all those interested in Israeli–Arab relations, the Middle East in general, international diplomacy, and conflict resolution.
