The Peace Puzzle: America’s Quest for Arab-Israeli Peace, 1989-2011


Institute For Middle East Studies

A great opportunity for analysis and critique has arisen from decades of attempts and setbacks in the Middle East Peace Process. The Peace Puzzle stemmed from a USIP study of past Arab-Israeli peace negotiations and efforts. The five authors of this work are veteran observers and premier scholars on the Middle East Peace Process. Three of the five authors of the book will give a panel discussion on critiques and suggestions for U.S. diplomatic activism in the region as expressed in the book.
