I was so depressed while watching the actions that are occurring in Gaza these days (January 2009) that I was thrilled to find that this book was not just educational but hopeful! Jimmy Carter had worked on trying to broker a real peace in the Middle East both during and after his tenure as president, and he has a great deal to say about what is possible if there is a real effort on all parts to bring honest effort to give both the Israelis and the Palestinians both peace and dignity. The quote from the book that scares me the most, and it can be applied to both sides, is credited to the historian Tacitus of ancient Rome: "They created desolation and call it peace." I hope for better things.
