One Year in the History of Israel and Palestine, which starts on 1 January and ends on 31 December 2010, traces the progress of efforts to bring Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table, recording the hopes and the setbacks as they occurred. It traces both the depressing cynicism of many about the prospects of success, and the uplifting determination of a few to maintain the process, whatever the setbacks. The story includes events in the region that impacted on the peace process along the way - the Gaza flotilla episode, the 'Mossad assassination' in Dubai and its aftermath, the Lebanon border incident, the rocket attacks, the end of the building freeze on the West Bank.

This absorbing account of the events of 2010 not only describes the major incidents of the year, but it includes essential background explanations when they are called for. The book began life as 'A Mid-East Journal', a blog by the author on the seminal events in the Middle East peace process.

Anyone interested in the Middle East in general, and the Israel-Palestine conflict in particular, will relish this unusual take on a ground-breaking year in the history of both Israel and what will surely become the sovereign state of Palestine.
