Uri Savir has an ambitious but indispensable goal: to modernize peacemaking. In the follow-up to his award-winning book, THE PROCESS, he exposes and deconstructs the many ironies and anachronisms in our current, deeply flawed approach to peacemaking. "Little in today's world, " he writes "is more progressive than modern warfare. Yet little is more archaic than today's peacemaking strategies." While the social, political, and economic elements of societies have evolved to encompass issues of globalization, hi-tech and communications, peacemaking as a strategy has remained stagnant. Savir makes many radical observations, including the long-denied fact that war-makers cannot also be the peace-makers, and that we mistakenly believe that security guarantees peace when the inverse is true: peace guarantees security. Our outmoded approaches to diplomacy, he argues, actually ensure failure; while our preparations future wars reflect current, ever-changing circumstances, our preparations for the next peace process are habitually and fatefully based on the previous peace process. Witness: of the approximately 70 partial and full peace agreements signed over the last two decades, a vast majority face severe sustainability issues or have simply drowned. As an alternative to a world in which peace is just the pause between wars, Savir urges readers to acknowledge that, just as we accept the fact that there are sometimes "necessary wars, " we must accept the imperative that there is always a "necessary peace." When we make this mental shift, peace becomes not merely a strategic objective, but instead a core, internalized value--a value that stems from our internalized commitment to equality between human beings, and from the realization that we all have similar needs, fears, hopes and weaknesses. To illustrate his four-point plan for sustainable peace-making, Savir draws on his own deep, first-hand experiences, most notably during the Oslo Peace Process, but also working to build peace between enemies and former enemies in the African nations of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, the European regions of Northern Ireland and the Former Yugoslavia, and in Asia -- Afghanistan, India and Pakistan.

Rather than diplomacy, the pronouncents of politicians, or incidents of terrorism, this examination of the challenges facing Palestinians focuses on grass-roots developments from within the new "self-rule" areas, particularly Gaza, to assess the impact of "peace" on the future of socio-economic and political development. The author argues that the interim order has led to a greater fragmentation of Palestinian society and marginalized the Palestinian street; and that, threatening to consolidate the goals of Israel's occupation, it has left Palestinians less able to present a co-ordinated challenge to Israeli power, while international aid and Palestinian "security functions" have been used to isolate the peace process from grass-roots demands. Faced with economic hardship and the pressure to comply, Parker contends, Palestinian society has been left torn between resignation and revolt, with little basis upon which to build an effective polity.

In The Next Agenda, editors Robert Borosage and Roger Hickey of the Campaign for America's Future have gathered essays written by some of America's most progressive thinkers and activists that lay out ideas and reforms to address the serious issues facing us today. They argue that the economic prosperity of the last decade can only be sustained if it is more widely shared. And they call for a new progressive movement to forge new rules for the global economy just as the Progressives of the last century tamed the excesses of America's national economy. Each of the fourteen essays in The Next Agenda detail the context that makes fundamental reform both necessary and possible and outlines the policy proposals that are vital to begin meeting the challenge. David Moberg, reporter for In These Times, writes about reforming labor law to empower workers whose voices have been drowned out by globalization. Richard Rothstein, education columnist for the New York Times, writes of the growing shortage of classrooms and teachers and suggests reform initiatives for public education. Ted Marmor of the Yale School of Management, and Jon Oberlander, of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, provide a plan to make affordable, comprehensive health care available to everyone. Carl Pope of The Sierra Club and a leader of the environmental movement joins with labor leader Robert Wages, of PACE International, to lay out elements of a Green Growth agenda, detailing how labor and environmentalists can combine in promoting sensible investments for sustainable growth. These forward-thinking essays serve as a springboard for national debate and provide an ambitious agenda for the next administration.

Our Way to Fight follows the dangerous lives of peace activists in Israel and Palestine. It explores the crises that stirred them to act, the risks they face, and the small victories that sustain them. Michael Riordon takes us to thousand year-old olive groves, besieged villages, refugee camps, checkpoints and barracks. In the face of deepening conflict, Our Way to Fight offers courageous grassroots action on both sides of the wall, and points the way to a liveable future. These engaging stories will provide inspiration to peace activists in Israel, Palestine and across the world.

This work constitutes a call to action for the leaders of this generation to endow their heirs with the kinds of values, prospects and prosperity that has sustained the American family, personally and nationally, for 200 years. The authors' proposals are specific. They range from ways to reach a zero deficit budget, to substituting a tax code that favours savings, investment and growth. They also delineate the elements of leadership - local, state, and national - that are necessary to meet America's greatest challenge since the winning of the Cold War.
