Negotiating Outside the Law : Why Camp David Failed Hardback


In the summer of 2000, President Clinton, Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat came together to negotiate peace between Israel and Palestine.

It was a moment laden with hope, that ended in infamous failure.

But why did it fail? The Camp David negotiations made headlines around the world for many months, but the real debates took place behind closed doors.

This book is his startling account of the arguments, the relationships and the strategies that played out over the summer of 2000.

Based on personal correspondence and position papers with all three leaders, and a long personal association with Yasser Arafat and a whole series of Israeli Prime Ministers dating back to 1985, this book offers a unique account of the real reasons behind the failure of Camp David.
