Summary
"On the evening of December 14, 1988, in a crowded conference room in Geneva's Palais des Nations, Yasser Arafat opened a new chapter in the tangled and bloody history of the Palestinian resistance movement he has led for over 20 years. In a political departure that friends and foes alike had long doubled he would ever be able to make, Arafat explicitly recognized Israel, renounced terrorism and set out in search of recognition from the West and a peaceful solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict."--Book Jacket
