Chronicle of a War Foretold: How Mideast Peace Became America's Fight

Norman Spector
$16.99


In November 1993, on the lawns of the White House, Israel and the Palestinians signed the Oslo agreement. A year later, Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres received the Nobel Prize in recognition of this historic achivement. What happened on the road to peace?

Norman Spector arrived in the Mideast in February 1992 and spent half the decade there--first as Canada's ambassador to Israel and to the Palestinian Authority, later as a publisher of the Jerusalem Post. An insider's perspective informs the selection of the key players on both sides, he clarifies the true nature of the Mideast conflict.

Chronicle of a War Foretold analyzes how the same forces and beliefs that led to the downward spiral in relations between Israel and the Palestinians spawned the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
