Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Book --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

"Point of No Return is an extraordinary achievement. It describes and dissects the Middle East conflict both in its whole and in its parts -- with complete realism and rare balance. No other work so well succeeds in both getting to the heart of all the issues in Arab-Israeli peacemaking and describing the other conflicts which torment the region and which so condition the outlook for truly comprehensive peace. This book is an authentic tour de force."
Samuel W. Lewis, U.S. Ambassador to Israel, 1977-1985

"A most timely book but one that has lasting value for understanding the much talked about but little understood Middle East peace process and the environment that shapes it."
Mohammed Wahby, Columnist, Al-Mussawar (Cairo) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on June 13, 1998
Format: Hardcover
The first part covers domestic constraints on the way to a peaceful settlement. It's good, after all it's the internal situation that sets some of the limits on what the parties can or cannot do. The second part covers obstacles to a comprehensive peace in the Middle East. This part is better than the first but ignores population growth in Jordan, West Bank and Gaza, which is unforgivable, while stresses its importance in Egypt, which is right. Social friction is not well presented, perhaps the authors are less familiar with cultural issues than with strategy. The book reminds that there are still plenty of possible clashing interests in the region. This is a good thing since people easily forget things that are not immediate threats. Raises a lot of questions.
