For the past two decades, Dr. Aaron David Miller served at the U.S. State Department as an advisor to six secretaries of state. He helped formulate U.S. policy on the Middle East and the Arab-Israel peace process, most recently as the Senior Advisor for Arab-Israeli Negotiations. He also served as the Deputy Special Middle East Coordinator for Arab-Israeli Negotiations. His critically-acclaimed book, "The Much Too Promised Land: America's Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace," is an extraordinary account of 20 years on the front lines of Arab-Israeli peacemaking. Dr. Miller has been featured on CNN, "The Newshour with Jim Lehrer," FOX News, "The NBC Nightly News," "CBS Evening News," and the Charlie Rose show on PBS. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and The International Herald Tribune.

Starred Review from Publisher's Weekly for "The Much Too Promised Land." In this extraordinary account of 20 years on the front lines of Arab-Israeli peacemaking, career diplomat Miller provides an impressively candid appraisal of Middle East peace efforts. Drawing from his extensive experience and 160 interviews with presidents, advisers and negotiators, he apportions censure and praise with an even hand, sparing not even his failures or those of his colleagues. Miller evinces genuine compassion for both sides in the conflict (stressing that Americans cannot fully understand the life-and-death stakes in the struggle between Israelis and Palestinians), while maintaining a detachment that allows him to draw hard conclusions.

"A revealing and well-written memoir.... Miller fills his pages with real characters and sly observations... [and] sobering tales from the front."-The New York Times
