After sketching the historical background and reviewing conflicting estimates of the amount of property involved, the volume investigates U.S. and UN settlement proposals developed—behind closed doors—in the 1950s and ‘60s, and explains how the peace process from Camp David I to Camp David II and beyond has actually hindered a settlement of property claims.
