Lord Caradon, Arthur J. Goldberg, Mohamed El-Zayyat and Abba Eban, the diplomats principally responsible for the drafting and negotiation of the famous resolution of November 1967, which owes its life to ambiguity and is still presumably the basis for Arab-Israeli settlement, recount in a symposium how it came about. While their recollections and interpretations are enlightening, they do not give a full and satisfying legislative history. Lord Caradon, the proposer of the resolution, is less interested in the past than in getting on with the negotiation of a real peace.
