These essays from a 1983 conference are better than the usual run of collected papers. Besides giving a general introduction to the problems of negotiating peace, they provide good background information on such topics as the diversity of Israeli views on that question, the attitudes of West Bank Palestinians, and the numbers and status of Palestinian refugees. Bernard Reich and Robert Freedman write their standard good pieces on American and Soviet policy, respectively; and, as the conference was held in Canada, an appropriate essay is included on what Canada might do toward Arab-Israeli peace (not much).
