In Search of Legitimacy for Peace
Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov - Author

"This is a serious and competent work of scholarship, clearly written, meticulously documented. Its message is that the achievement of peaceful settlement in a protracted and violent international (or interethnic) conflict is possible only if certain conditions are realized.
