Summary

A foreign policy expert provides a fresh and accessible analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, its complex obstacles, and possible solutions. 
 
Luis Fleischman is a sociologist and Middle East policy expert who has served as a senior advisor to government officials and members of congress. In The Middle East Riddle, he examines obstacles to achieving peace that transcend the negotiations process, mostly relying on a broad sociological analysis.  
 
Over the years, the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has seemed like an intractable conflict of opposing narratives. Some argue that the Palestinians want to put an end to the State of Israel, while others believe Israelis want to impose their sovereignty via settlement expansion. However, the history shows that the two sides have been very close to an agreement.  
 
Fleischman examines a variety of nuanced solutions towards progress. He analyzes the idea of a Palestinian/Jordanian confederacy, as well as a proposed Israeli unilateral withdrawal from most of the West Bank. The book also explores the chances that the Palestinian security establishment, that has worked together with the Israeli security establishment for years, could generate the leadership necessary to restore order.

    How and Why Nations Fail

    In a world forged by the shards of history, it is not to be expected that countries court the very things that have proven to be the grey cardinals fostering the underdevelopment, backwardness, and failures that mark them and others. Time and again these things perpetrate the carnage, tumult, and catastrophes that have kept countries chained, making them hemorrhage God-given potential, with some managing to attain only a modicum of progress in areas they would have been no less of the global best.
     
    These harbingers of failure and backwardness are not restricted to any one country, they are to be found in just about every geographical expression known to mankind as a “nation”. They differ only to the degree to which they are pronounced and in the reach within which their effects are palpable.
     
    It is my unreserved intent in this volume to disambiguate these agents of national failure down to the metal, to the end that such knowledge may prove useful in whatever noble scope it is needed.
