Summary

How realistic is peace in the Middle East? Until recently, it seemed as though Israeli - Palestinian relations were improving. The Gulf War opened the door to regional realignments and paved the way for the PLO - Israel peace agreement, which in turn made peace negotiations possible between Israel and Syria. Lebanon is rebuilding its cities following a cessation of its civil war, and Iran has shown signs of a rapprochement with the West. Yet some analysts predict that these changes are doomed to failure. With its longstanding terrirorial disputes and pronounced ethnic and religious divides, will this troubled region ever resolve its conflicts? This provocative and interdisciplinary book tackles these controversial questions from a wide range of perspectives in an effort to unravel the complexities of this exciting area.
