Review quote

"This unique book makes a significant and sorely needed contribution to discussions of how to address the Palestinian refugee problem in the context of Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking.... Dumper draws fair-minded, thoughtful conclusions that can guide future negotiations." - Michael R. Fischbach, Randolph Macon College "Valuable and thought provoking.... Mick Dumper starts from a basic premise: any resolution of the Palestinian refugee issue ought to be informed by 'best practice' in other conflict areas. From this he develops a sophisticated critique of past negotiations on the issue and offers rare insight into how things might be done differently." - Rex Brynen, McGill University"show more
