I generally avoid works of fiction, so the closest I get to fantasy make believe is reading about the middle east peace process.Great book if you re interested in first person history and the ins outs of middle east shuttle diplomacy. I liked the book, but it seems to hold up to the proverbial comment on sausage making and politics Dennis gets well into the nitty gritty of international negotiations and at 900 pages, the book provides significant insight about the daily interactions that go on behind the scenes of these meetings On one hand, this is a fascinating look behind the curtain of international diplomacy, it often gets bogged down in a this said, that said, exchange It s a high level of detail, and often, you can I liked the book, but it seems to hold up to the proverbial comment on sausage making and politics Dennis gets well into the nitty gritty of international negotiations and at 900 pages, the book provides significant insight about the daily interactions that go on behind the scenes of these m

If you look at when I started and when I finished you would have some questions about why I finished Well to be honest because Dennis Ross is a good writer, but I got overwhelmed a few times There are so many characters and thread here that I got derailed a couple of times I gave three stars and perhaps it should beas Dennis is comprehensive in detailing the way things as usual went south during his attempts as Middle East envoy and chief peace negotiator during the GHW Bush and B Clint If you look at when I started and when I finished you would have some questions about why I finished Well to be honest because Dennis Ross is a good writer, but I got overwhelmed a few times There are so many characters and thread here that I g
