Over the past two decades, more and more Americans have learned the truth about Israel's brutal policies toward the Palestinians. This terrific collection of essays-which explains why recent attempts to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have failed-is another major step in setting the record straight. Anyone who wants to know why the Middle East peace process never leads to peace should read From Camp David to Cast Lead.

Choose any ten years in the history of Washington's Middle East 'peace process,' and you will find way more 'process' than anything resembling peace. Framing the most recent decade by two of its biggest disasters, Faruqi brings together a wide-ranging team of analysts to sort out why the failures continue-most importantly because of the longstanding U.S.-Israeli rejection of international law and human rights as the crucial basis for any serious solution. The assembly of Palestinian and other writers demonstrate how the 'two-state' model is, or soon will be, a hopeless anachronism-and crucially, the urgent need to consider new, not-so-new, different and creative alternatives for a just peace.

The book is an essential read for anyone interested in the last decade of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Even the general readers cannot afford to miss this book which contains a wealth of opinions, analyses and proposed solutions. The book lives up to its goal as stated by the Editor Daanish Faruqi '...the goal of this volume is to challenge the underlying assumptions of prevailing peace paradigms by exposing their limitations in the aftermath of the past ten years'. The editor of the book must be congratulated for compiling this important addition to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
