"[Raz's] conclusions may be radical, but his case is set out with the utmost scruple, and in damning detail."--Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman--Michael kerrigan "The Scotsman" (9/8/2012 12:00:00 AM)

"Avi Raz's excellent work is an essay on the politics of immobilism and faits accomplis of Israel's leaders in the wake of the 1967 war. This is an indispensable study for our understanding of how and why Israel got trapped in the tragic connundrum of a continuous occupation of Palestinian lands instead of using its military supremacy to change the nature of its relations with the Arab world." --Shlomo Ben-Ami, former foreign minister of Israel; Vice President, Toledo International Centre for Peace (CITpax), and author of Scars of War, Wounds of Peace: The Israeli-Arab Tragedy--Shlomo Ben Ami

"This book is a milestone in scholarship on Israel's foreign policy. Avi Raz uses the full panoply of primary sources in all the relevant languages to brilliantly illuminating effect. He also succeeds in weaving together his wide-ranging archival trawling into a fascinating narrative. And he argues compellingly that in the aftermath of the June 1967 War, Israel's leaders preferred territorial expansion to peace with their Arab neighbours."--Avi Shlaim, author of The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World and Lion of Jordan: King Hussein's Life in War and Peace--Avi Shlaim
