Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Based on interviews with PLO chief Yassir Arafat, Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin and other key participants in the Israeli-Palestinian struggle, Perry's study is a major entry in the literature of modern diplomacy, tracking the slow process of reconciliation from the beginning of the Palestinian intifada in 1987 to the signing of the "Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements" last year. His report on the back-channel Oslo meetings between PLO economist Abu Alaa and Israeli representative Yair Hirschfeld, a Haifa University history professor, is skillfully counterpointed by an account of Rabin's wrangles with Jewish-American lobbying groups who objected to any compromise on the Palestinian question and an inside look at the 1993 internal challenge to Arafat's leadership of the PLO. A talented historian with a narrative gift, Perry ( Eclipse: The Last Days of the CIA ) describes the confluence of events over a six-year period that climaxed in the compromise agreement sealed with Rabin and Arafat's widely publicized handshake on the White House lawn on September 13, 1993.

From Library Journal

This is a solid, well-detailed account of the maneuvering and machinations behind the scenes of the stunning peace accords between Israel and the Palestinians. In addition to the statements of the participants and facilitators from the United States and Norway, Perry has also gathered the reactions of influential Arabs, American Jewish, and other global observers who stand to help or hinder the accords' translation into reality. For those looking for the details of this historic process, Perry's book is recommended as an invaluable companion to Shimon Peres's The New Middle East (LJ 2/1/94). However, it lacks the passion and sense of a call to vision that drives Peres's work. Recommended for comprehensive collections in this area.
