Read in January, 2007

In this book, former president Jimmy Carter offers a perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He suggests that peace can be achieved in the region when Israel starts honoring UN resolutions 242 and others. If only Israel left the occupied territories, all would be well. But Carter fails in this respect. Honoring UN resolutions is no panacea. The conflict is thousands of years old. Although not entirely accurate in some places (Carter’s notes are faulty at times), the book does shed some light on the history of the region and Carter’s influences there (which are significant). I respect Carter a great deal, but this book is not his best work. It’s all memories, anecdotes, not careful analysis.
