The Turkish-Armenian Conflict has lasted for nearly a century and still continues in attenuated forms to poison the relationship between Turks and Armenians. Contact was taboo before the author brought the two sides together to explore ways of overcoming their historical enmity. His lively account of the difficult discussions makes fascinating reading. It shows that the newly developed Track Two diplomacy is an effective tool for reconciling even intractable foes through fostering dialogue, contact, and cooperation.
