  6. New Title | Justice and Peace in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

    In this book, the late Prof. Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov argues that the failure of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process so far has been mainly the result of the inability of both sides to reach an agreed formula for linking justice to peace.
