Israel Today with Ambassador Dennis Ross

Former U.S. Peace Negotiator, Author, and Diplomatic Adviser
The U.S.-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama
and the potential impact of the 2016 U.S. presidential election on foreign policy

From his first days as a young Pentagon planner in the Carter administration to his latest White House tour in the Obama administration, Ambassador Dennis Ross has been at the heart of American foreign policy and the U.S.-Israel relationship. His postings have spanned the administrations of five presidents, both Democrat and Republican.  

Currently, Ross is counselor and the William Davidson Distinguished Fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and a Distinguished Professor at Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.

Ross' latest book, Doomed to Succeed: The U.S.-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama, chronicles 11 presidents and their relations with Israel, weaving together diplomatic history and personal experience to recount the presidents’ attitudes toward Israel and the region.
