aA thoughtful autopsy of the failed two-state paradigm . . . Evenhanded, diplomatic, mutually respectful and enormously useful.a aKirkus, starred review Disputes over settlements, the right of return, the rise of Hamas, recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, and other intractable issues have repeatedly derailed peace negotiations between Israel and Palestine. Now, in a book that is sure to spark controversy, renowned peacemaker Padraig OaMalley argues that the moment for a two-state solution has passed. After examining each issue and speaking with Palestinians and Israelis as well as negotiators directly involved in past summits, OaMalley concludes that even if such an agreement could be reached, it would be nearly impossible to implement given the staggering costs, Palestineas political disunity and the viability of its economy, rapidly changing demographics, Israelas continuing political shift to the right, global warmingas effect on the water supply, and more. In this revelatory, hard-hitting book, OaMalley approaches the key issues pragmatically, without ideological bias, to show that we must find new frameworks for reconciliation if there is to be lasting peace between Palestine and Israel.
