Ambassador Dennis Ross is Counselor and William Davidson Distinguished Fellow at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Prior to returning to the Institute in 2011, he served two years as special assistant to President Obama and National Security Council senior director for the Central Region. His book explores the attitudes and approach of every president toward Israel and the Middle East, outlining the key assumptions, the unity or division of the president’s advisors, the key events in each administration and how the overall relationship has evolved. It highlights the lessons that should have been learned and were not, and what the implications are for U.S. policy toward Israel and the region today. Ross’ previous books include Statecraft: And How to Restore America's Standing in the World and The Missing Peace: The Inside Story of the Fight for Middle East Peace.
There will be a book signing and reception following the discussion.
The cost for this event is $15 for Weinstein JCC members ($10 for seniors, students and groups of 10+) and $18 for non-members.
