Marwan Muasher has held many high-level positions within the government of Jordan, including Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Minister, Ambassador to the United States, and first Jordanian Ambassador to Israel.
"This book is a must read to understand how to address the challenges facing the Middle East today." President Bill Clinton "In this painstakingly fair-minded and sensible memoir Muasher tries to show why there is still no solution to the Palestinan-Israeli imbroglio... His tome is a litany of disappointment and frustration, studded with plenty of useful insights and anecdotes. Yet it is not without hope; the outline of a two-state solution is still there for all to see. The next American president would do well to peruse Mr. Muasher's offering." The Economist "Muasher's book raises what may be the most damning criticism of the Bush administration's Middle East policy - that it has unwittingly undercut the very people the United States wanted most to help."
