Scars of War, Wounds of Peace

The book outlines the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the War of Independence to the present.
In Scars of War, Wounds of Peace (Orion, 2005), Shlomo Ben-Ami gives an analytical account of the Arab-Israeli conflict through its fluctuating movement between war and peace.

The book outlines the history of the conflict from the War of Independence to the present. It identifies the Yom Kippur War and the ascendancy of America in the 1970s as the watershed that inaugurated the peace process, and goes on to follow the tortuous quest for peace through its major milestones.

Ben-Ami paints particularly sharp portraits of key figures, from Ben-Gurion to Bill Clinton, and gives behind-the-scenes accounts of the meetings in Oslo, Madrid, and Camp David.
