  9. 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. 

    "This book represents a lifetime of wisdom in dealing with the most basic issues of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It is a fitting tribute to a career devoted to finding ways out of the impasse and remarkable in its ability to encompass the narratives of both parties. It should be required reading not only in courses on the conflict itself, but in any course concerned with issues of justice and peace in seemingly intractable confrontations." - Alan Dowty
