The Much Too Promised Land: America's Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace (MP3 CD)
For nearly twenty years, Aaron David Miller has played a central role in US efforts to broker Arab-Israeli peace. His position as an advisor to presidents, secretaries of state, and national security advisors has given him a unique perspective on a problem that American leaders have wrestled with for more than half a century: Why has the world's greatest superpower failed to find a solution for peace in the Middle East? Here is an insider's view of the peace process, filled with unforgettable behind-the-scenes stories and interviews with all the key players, as they disclose the inner thoughts and strategies that motivated them. The result is a book which shatters preconceived notions about tackling the complicated issues of culture, religion, domestic politics, and national security that have defined--and often derailed--a half-century of diplomacy.
