Choice Outstanding Title 2011

"Valuable for a theoretical understanding of the complex world of conflict resolution and for providing balanced analysis of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict/ peace process."—Review of Middle East Studies

"In a remarkably objective manner, the author analyzes what is, in today’s media frenzy of coverage of public diplomacy, probably the most accurate account of what has actually transpired between Israeli officials and designees and their Palestinian counterparts over a negotiated settlement of conflicted issues."—Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews

"Wanis-St. John has opened an important line of inquiry with his focus on back channel negotiating. I appreciate the care with which he assembled the case study and pulled together a wide array of accounts into one detailed narrative, adding admirably to our understanding."—Eileen F. Babbitt, Negotiation Journal

"This is a very important, engrossing work for professionals and lay readers interested in how international diplomacy works behind the scenes. Highly recommended."—Choice

"Back Channel Negotiation is an excellent marriage of history and critical thought and is an important resource for scholars of conflict resolution."—Peter Weinberger, author of Co-opting the PLO: A Critical Reconstruction of the Oslo Accords,1993–1995

"Large scale conflict is always complex, and Back Channel Negotiation is a rare and brilliant example of accepting and using that complexity. Starting with a detailed and thoughtful narrative of back channel negotiations in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Wanis-St. John then builds convincing and provocative theory tightly linked to that narrative."—David Matz, University of Massachusetts, Boston
