9780972061636: Peace in the Promised Land: A Realist Scenario
From Booklist:

While the second Iraq war enthralls most commentators, several regular contributors to the sui generis monthly of cultural commentary, Chronicles, point to the perennial elephant in the room: Palestine. Thomas Fleming outlines the area's history from before Abraham to Napoleon, and Michael Stenton from Napoleon to modern Israel, to show that Palestine has virtually always been disputed, that claims of rights to it are mythic, and that the West, especially Britain and the U.S., bears much responsibility for its present, long unrest. Five essays consider the forces impinging on peacemaking: Israeli and U.S. policymakers, Islam, Christian Zionism, American neoconservatives, and the interests of Russia, China, and western Europe. Five further articles assess factors that must be addressed for any peace settlement to last, such as the U.S.-Israel relationship, access to water, and international law. A few pieces plod in think-tank prose, but most are sharp, informative, memorable, and humane (especially Aaron D. Wolf on Christian Zionism). A reasonable peace is possible, these authors cogently maintain, and they urge to start making it now. Ray Olson
