Following his #1 New York Times bestseller Our Endangered Values, the former president and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize offers an assessment of what must be done to bring permanent peace to Israel with dignity and justice to Palestine.

President Carter, who was able to negotiate peace between Israel and Egypt, has remained deeply involved in Middle East affairs since leaving the White House. Now he shares his intimate knowledge of the history of the Middle East and his personal experiences with the major players from all sides in the conflict, and addresses sensitive political issues many American officials avoid. Pulling no punches, Carter prescribes steps that must be taken for the two states to share the Holy Land without a system of apartheid or the constant fear of terrorism.

The general parameters of a long-term, two-state agreement are well known, the president says. There will be no substantive and permanent peace for any people in this troubled region as long as Israel is violating key U.N. resolutions, official American policy and the international “road map” for peace by occupying Arab lands and oppressing the Palestinians.

Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid is a challenging, provocative, and courageous work.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An honorable, honest account by a friend of Israel as a well as the Arabs who just happens to be a fine American ex-statesman.” 

    Sunday Tribune (Ireland) 

  • “Makes for compelling reading…provides an important reminder that the Camp David agreement only created a durable peace between Egypt and Israeli-Palestinian peace initiatives that were to follow.”


  • “The former president’s ideas are expressed with perfect clarity; his book, of course, represents a personal point of view, but one that is certainly grounded in both knowledge and wisdom. His outlook on the problem not only contributes to the literature of debate surrounding it but also, just as importantly, delivers a worthy game plan for clearing up the dilemma.” 


  • “Carter has an innate understanding of the Middle East and its complexities…He offers timely thoughts on how to restore peace to the region.” 


  • ANew York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Steven Salaita | 2/16/2014

    " Carter's analysis really isn't very strong. His politics are pretty conventional, as one would expect from a former imperial manager (er, I mean US President). The book was such a sensation because of Carter's standing and reputation, not because of his groundbreaking theorization. The best part about it is that it makes Zionists absolutely frantic and pissy, which means that it has some real utility. "

    " I actually listened to this while traveling over the weekend. Very insightful. Plus, nothing beats the reading being done by the actual author. Excellent. "

    " President Carter didn't hold anything back- he put the smack down on all sides, including the United States. "

    " I learned a little of the history of the middle east conflict surrounding the Jews in Israel. I felt that Carter was somewhat slanted in putting more blame on Israel for the conflicts and that he focused more of the book on that. I felt he didn't write enough about the attrocities that Palestinians have inflicted. "
