   schema:reviewBody """Few people are better qualified to explain how it all went so wrong than Dennis Ross" (The Economist). As the chief Middle East peace negotiator in the presidential administrations of George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Ross is that rare figure who is respected by all parties: Democrats and Republicans, Palestinians and Israelis, presidents and people on the street in Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Washington, D.C. In The Missing Peace he tells the story of the search for enduring peace in a perpetually troubled region with unprecedented vividness, candor, and insight." "Ross recounts the peace process in detail from 1988 to the breakdown of talks in early 2001 that prompted the so-called second Intifada. It's all here: Camp David, Oslo, Geneva, Egypt, and other summits; the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin; the rise and fall of Binyamin Netanyahu; the very different characters and strategies of Rabin, Yasir Arafat, and Bill Clinton; and the first steps of the Palestinian Authority. For the first time, the backroom negotiations, the dramatic and often secretive nature of the process, and the reasons for its faltering are on display for all to see, through "revealing and, occasionally, surprising portraits of various Israeli and Palestinian leaders" (Glenn Frankel, The Washington Post). Now with a new afterword taking account of recent events, The Missing Peace explains, as no other book has, why Middle East peace remains so elusive. Book jacket."--Jacket." ;
