This little book explores the possibilities and occasional drawbacks of "track two" diplomacy-i.e., the use of unofficial intermediaries as a means of preparing for the resolution of conflict along the official "track one." There are case studies involving the Dominican Republic, the two Germanies, the two Koreas, and Egypt, the PLO and Israel.
