He was point man on peace negotiations in the George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations. In that role he was instrumental in assisting Israelis and Palestinians reach the 1995 Interim Agreement. He also brokered the 1997 Hebron Accord and facilitated the 1994 Israel-Jordan peace treaty.
Ross is also the author of three books on U.S. diplomacy and statecraft . His most recent, Doomed to Succeed; the U.S.-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama, was published in 2015 by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux.
The lecture is sponsored by the college’s Ruth K. and Shepard Broad International Lecture Series.
