The High Cost of Peace

Yossef Bodansky

$59.99

Hardback
Since the Gulf War, three U.S. administrations have tried desperately to negotiate peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Crafted through a series of policy missteps, the tenuous peace left Israel vulnerable and drew the ire of militant Islam -- culminating in the attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., and renewed violence in the Middle East.^In this engrossing book, author Yossef Bodansky reveals the bitter legacy of a peace process that has emboldened such outlaw countries as Iran and Iraq, enriched Arab militaries with billions of U.S. dollars, and mobilized an underground network of terror cells around the globe. He uncovers the political undercurrents and secret deals that have shaped and destabilized the region, the events leading up to September 11, and the inside story of a dangerous quest for peace that has led to a war the likes of which the Middle East has never before seen.
