In the story, Mitchell takes detours into the Clinton-Dole debates and a typically libelous encounter with the Daily Mail, and when he returns to the Northern Ireland peace talks, they are still in the "agenda-setting" phase. The pace of the book, if off-kilter, accurately reflects the talks themselves: two years of organizational procedures capped off by two whirlwind weeks of actual policy.

The landmark 1998 Good Friday Agreement of Northern Ireland still holds, however threatened. That agreement was the result of several years of intense, difficult negotiations led by former senate. George Mitchell served as Senator from Maine from 1980 to 1995, the last six years as Majority Leader. Since leaving the Senate, in addition to chairing the Northern Ireland peace talks, he has served as Chairman of the International Crisis Group, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention of crisis in international affairs, and as Chairman of the Ethics Committee of the .

Mitchell’s inestimable political genius played a crucial role in achieving the historic Good Friday Agreement. As it emerges here, his unwavering patience, vast experience, and supreme evenhandedness steered the bickering parties toward consensus, pushing the peace process forward against powerful tides of sectarian hatred. Mitchell makes clear how his years as Senate majority leader prepared him well to confront the polarized political climate of Northern Ireland, where incendiary rhetoric and rifles have often substituted for political discourse.

UPDATED WITH A NEW PREFACEFifteen minutes before five o'clock on Good Friday, 1998, Senator George Mitchell was informed that his long and difficult quest for an Irish peace effort had succeeded--the Protestants and Catholics of Northern Ireland, and the governments of the Republic of Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom, would sign the agreement.

This book is an enjoyable read which will introduce you to all the major players in the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Peace Accords, and give a good sense of what the challenges were and how the various parties worked to overcome them.
Unfortunately, it was probably too early for Mitchell to come out with any new details, and he is reluctant to be overly critical of any of the parties -- no doubt a wise move as the peace process contiues to move forward.
Hopefully, we will see another account from Mitchell in the future which will give a little bit more bite in terms of how he really feels. In the mean time, this book is well worth the quick read.

I read this book in my undergrad days and had to again at graduate level. Its a really good quick read for anyone interested in learning how the conflict in Northern Ireland got resolved.

Excellent opportunity to try to understand the very complex peace negotiations in Northern Ireland. Senator Mitchell is clear and restrained and unbiased in his retelling of thes important megotiations, the participants, and the outcome.

for anyone involved in conflict resolution, also demonstrates the patience, perserverance and compassion required for a successful negotiator, and most importantly, illustrates the benefits of finding peace.

Making the impossible possible in a world of 300 year old hatreds, dogma recited ad nauseum, and those whose futures and lives were put at great risk. It was an exhausting process, but Mitchell is a hero among other heroes. It's a testament to persistence, patience and hope.

Mitchell was there-every minute of the long slog to peace. Nice to read all the details and about the brave men and women who made it happen.
