Uri Savir, a top negotiator for Israel, was recovering from a stroke when he wrote his manifesto for peace, calling for new strategies. There's a lot of professional jargon to bog this work down, but there's a reason for the average person to read it: Savir calls on everyday people, as well as nongovernmental organizations and local governments, to play a role in the peace process. Fortunately, narrator Richmond Hoxie’s enthusiasm conveys Savir's strong beliefs, and he even does well with the jargon. He's especially effective as Savir shows how his ideas might work with an extended discussion of the Mediterranean region. Concerned listeners will welcome Savir's ideas on creating a "peace ecology." J.A.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2009]
