My review of Dennis Ross's new book on U.S.-Israel relations, Doomed to Succeed, is in the January issue of COMMENTARY. Here is the first paragraph of the review:
Having served in five administrations over the course of four decades and having worked with six Israeli prime ministers, Dennis Ross has unparalleled experience and a unique vantage point with respect to the U.S.–Israel relationship. His history of the 12 presidencies since 1948 is an important one for policymakers, politicians, scholars, and students. It deserves a wide readership, even though—or even because—the history he recounts does not support the title of the book.
