|Long Description||"Having observed earlier periods of determined, persistent, creative and wise American diplomacy on the Arab-Israeli conflict, we are left to ponder whether that kind of American leadership and diplomatic wisdom can be recaptured. We also are left to wonder whether the supportive domestic environment in which previous administrations operated will recur, or whether Congressional and public support for Israel has limited administration options and thus changed the very nature of the American role in the peace process. Our overall conclusions in this volume represent a mix of process, politics, and substantive lessons learned, offered in the hope that a better understanding of the past can inform future policy."―from The Peace Puzzle Each phase of Arab-Israeli peacemaking has been inordinately difficult in its own right, and every critical juncture and decision point in the long process has been shaped by U.S. politics and the U.S. leaders of the moment. The Peace Puzzle tracks the American determination to articulate policy, develop strategy and tactics, and see through negotiations to agreements on an issue that has been of singular importance to U.S. interests for more than forty years. In 2006, the authors of The Peace Puzzle formed the Study Group on Arab-Israeli Peacemaking, a project supported by the United States Institute of Peace, to develop a set of "best practices" for American diplomacy. The Study Group conducted in-depth interviews with more than 120 policymakers, diplomats, academics, and civil society figures and developed performance assessments of the various U.S. administrations of the post–Cold War period. This book, an objective account of the role of the United States in attempting to achieve a lasting Arab–Israeli peace, is informed by the authors' access to key individuals and official archives.|

The data feed API is URL based, but if you prefer to use the REST interface, you can do most things using that method.
Your API key should be in the request header "x-api-key" but will also work on the URL if you prefer using keycode=????????
When accessing the API using REST, the URL needs to be in this format:
version: The API version you are trying to access starting with the letter "v" followed by the version number as an integer. (ie: v3 or v2)
action: The action you wish to perform. Not all actions are currently available using the API. The ones that work currently are:
- find: perform a data lookup
- search: perform a text search
- asin-to-ean: convert an Amazon ASIN into an EAN
- imdb-to-ean: convert and IMDB ID into an EAN
dataID: This is the data you are searching for. For "find" this is an EAN or UPC code. For "search" this can be any text properly encoded for he URL.
To get your data back as XML, put "application/xml" in your "accept" header. If you prefer JSON (the default format) you can leave off the "accept" header or send "application/json". You can also include your preference on the URL using mode=json or mode=xml but using the request header is the preferred method.
We will continue to add more REST interface features in the future so be sure to check back on this page every once in a while.
*** Updating data via the REST interface is not ready yet but will require test=1 on the URL as the first variable if you are testing your application to prevent actual data updates. Placing it later on the URL could cause this variable to be skipped if you have errors in your URL.
