Praise For Palestine Peace Not Apartheid

"This book offers a historical overview in the form of a personal memoir....Carter may thus be said to be both a source for the historian and himself a historian of the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation. This little book merits a reading on both counts."

-- L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs



"A provocative and all too accurate diagnosis of why the Israeli-Palestinian impasse still festers twenty-five years after [Carter] left the White House....Timely and refreshing for its candor."

-- Philip C. Wilcox, Jr., National Catholic Reporter



"This is a must-read for anyone desiring to understand the Middle East problems."

-- Dennis Lythgoe, The Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City)



"Takes dead aim at what is the most pressing international affairs and national security issue of our times....Mr. Carter brings to the table a unique credibility."

-- Dan Simpson, The Toledo Blade (Ohio)
