Chances for Peace is an innovative re-examination of ninety years of attempted negotiations in the Arab-Israeli conflict. This study provides a balanced account of the most significant attempts to forge peace, initiated by the world’s superpowers, the Arabs (including the Palestinians), and Israel. From Arab-Zionist negotiations at the end of World War I to the Abu Mazen-Olmert talks in 2008, Elie Podeh uses empirical criteria and diverse secondary sources to assess the protagonists’ roles at thirty key junctures. A resource that brings together historiography, political science, and the practice of peace negotiation, Podeh’s insightful exploration also showcases opportunities that were not missed. By applying his framework to a range of power brokers and time periods, Podeh also sheds light on incidents that contradict official narratives. This unique approach is poised to reshape the realm of conflict resolution.
