"This conflict was made and sustained by men and women. It could be ended by men and women. And I knew those men
Completed 140119: Very enjoyable. My first reading of the Irish peace process. A bit tedious at times, but nonetheless informative. I am particularly intrigued with the role of "timing" in a negotiation process. Speeding up and slowing down are as important to the outcome as are the substantive issues.
Senator George Mitchell's account of his role mediating the Belfast Accord. Amazing, amazing book for anyone who is at all interested in international diplomacy, Irish history, or anything of the sort. The man sat down with Gerry Adams and Ian Paisley at the same time - he's officially a hero.
Probably would have given it a higher rating before the Mitchell Report came out. . . his view point of the peace process in Northern Ireland. . . Gerry Adams' books are must better (more of the Irish humor!)
