Sen. George Mitchell (D-Maine) may be better known to sports-inclined readers of The Jerusalem Post as the author of The Mitchell Report, a 2007 exposé on performance-enhancing drug use in Major League Baseball. But two years after the report was released, Mitchell was appointed by US President Barack Obama to a very new and different role – special envoy for Middle East peace.

With Alon Sachar, he has written A Path to Peace, a book that recounts the history and failings of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, tells of Mitchell’s experiences as a diplomat in the region and lays out what they believe to be the best way forward. Sachar is a former adviser to both Mitchell and US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro.
