Product Details


“Josh Ruebner has produced the authoritive autopsy of the US-led peace process. His portrait of America’s first African-American president demonstrating passivity in the face of apartheid is absolutely devastating.” —Max Blumenthal, author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel

“An essential contribution to the subject. Josh has been spearheading efforts for an even-handed U.S. policy for a dozen years, and has an intimate knowledge of how the administration and Congress work as well as unparalleled expertise on US aid to Israel.” —Nadia Hijab, author and media commentator

“With the passion of a longtime activist and the rigor of a trained researcher, Josh Ruebner dissects a wide range of sources to provide a tour de force analysis of Obama’s failed Middle East policy.” —Phyllis Bennis, Institute for Policy Studies

“This marvelous book looks at one of the thorniest aspects of foreign policy today. It’s a book for those who are not content to sit on the sidelines and watch the continuous dispossession of the Palestinian people, committed if not in our name, then with our blessing.” —Bill Fletcher, Jr. 

“This book is much more than a devastating indictment of an immoral U.S. policy; it is a clarion call for US civil society to take action where our government falters.” —Anna Baltzer, author of Witness in Palestine

“This book doesn’t pull any punches but rather is an honest assessment of Washington’s failed peace attempts that anyone who genuinely cares about a just peace should read.” —Yousef Munayyer, Executive Director, The Palestine Center 

“Anyone who wants to understand what happened on this front during the fateful first five years of Obama’s presidency needs to read this book!” —Helena Cobban, former columnist, Christian Science Monitor, founder of Just World Books

“A stinging indictment of the absurdity of the Obama administration’s failed peace process.” —Tikkun

“A devastating book. Mining deeply into the treasure trove of classified documents released by Wikileaks and the Palestine Papers, Ruebner demonstrates that the role of the Obama administration regarding Israel-Palestine has been even worse than those paying close attention to public, non-leaked material could have imagined.” —John V. Whitbeck, Journal of Palestine Studies

“Ruebner is unafraid to tell it like it is. Drawing from a wealth of primary sources obtained from WikiLeaks, the Palestine Papers, and both clandestine and open documents, he presents analysis that is intriguing even to an expert.” —Heather Hartlaub, Muftah
