Apartheid is a very strong word, but it's hard to find another term to describe a world where one group of people in an illegally occupied territory operates under one set of rules - that of the occupying country - while the other group is forced to live under military law, drive on their own set of highways, go through multiple checkpoints just to go to work, etc. Yet Carter describes the situation almost perfectly. He also provides a history of the many attempts made to reconcile the Israelis and Palestinians ... as well as the actual texts of the Camp David Accord and the contentious UN resolutions that have made a ridiculous situation all the crazier. Peace is certainly possible ... although now not even under the parameters that Carter himself suggests in this book.

A great read not only historical but interesting and entertaining. This book should be required reading in US history @ high school level. Written by a president of the US a president who still is sought after as a judge of democrat6ic elections i8n several countries. Much of this book is still happening today ( about 50 years now) President Carter is an Elder of the world, like Mandela and Tutu and still speaks out today when not censored and very relevant. 3 stars

There's a lot of good material and information in President Carter's book, though he tends to focus most strongly on his own efforts and those of President Clinton, which is understandable given his political leanings. My only real issue with the book is that Carter spends too much time hocking his other books and trying to make sales within the pages of this one. If the presented material is good it will stand on its own and lead people to buy, or read, other books. I don't need all the sales pitches which interrupt the narrative.
