Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Though only 24, Miller, the daughter of a U.S. State Department negotiator and a mother active in the leadership program Seeds for Peace, is something of a veteran of Middle Eastern matters. Her own involvement with Seeds for Peace, which primarily helps Arab and Israeli students learn the delicate arts of negotiation and conflict resolution, begins in 1996, and it is the intensity of her first experiences with the group—which took place in the hopeful period between the Oslo accords and the rise of the second intifada—that inform her fundamentally optimistic point of view. But the past half-decade has been hard for such optimists, and Miller's ambitious, personal exploration of the conflict (especially its ruinous effect on the youth of the region) is often conflicted and raw, angry and impatient. Her best diplomatic instincts don't preserve her from disgust at much of what she hears and sees from everyone from Arafat to Powell, from a settlement mayor to the denizens of a Ramallah pizza joint; she is even prepared to condemn her own father's "watery evasions." Miller's passionate advocacy of fairness and clarity can seem at times naïve, but her commitment to the process of peace comes through at every point.

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School–Miller is the daughter of one of the chief American negotiators in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and a longtime participant in the Seeds of Peace program, bringing together Israeli and Palestinian children. Using the many contacts that she has made, from the highest leaders to the children on the street, Miller explores with care and consideration the many different viewpoints and preconceptions of the people involved in the conflict, not excluding her own. She takes particular advantage of the relationships that she has developed with kids who have attended the Seeds of Peace camp in the U.S., a group less homogeneous than one might expect. The result is insight into the conflict that is not readily apparent elsewhere, notable for the openness and honesty toward the issues involved and, just as importantly, a reminder of the troubled inheritance of the youth of these two peoples. This is a superb book on a crucial issue of our time.–Ted Westervelt, Library of Congress, Washington, DC
