Gad Yaacobi - Ambassador of Israel to the United Nations, Minister in Israeli Governments, and accomplished writer - draws the reader into a world in flux, fraught with opportunities and dangers: The potential for peace and regional cooperation in the Middle East versus the danger fundamentalist terrorism that threatens to sent the region back to the Dark Ages; the New World Disorder created by the spread of ethnic, religious, and national conflicts, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in world where democracy still finds itself in the minority; and the challenge - prompted by the emergence a vigorous, prosperous Israel on the road to peace - to build a new, more profound Israel-Diaspora partnership that goes beyond merely responding existential crises.
