Summary
A gripping day-to-day account of the 1978 Camp David conference, when President Jimmy Carter persuaded Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian president Anwar Sadat to sign the first peace treaty in the modern Middle East, one which endures to this day
Summary
In September 1978, President Jimmy Carter brought representatives of Israel and Egypt together at Camp David (the U.S. president's retreat in Maryland) and persuaded them to sign a peace treaty. This detailed, authoritative account provides a compelling day-by-day chronicle of the two weeks in which President Carter, Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat negotiated a historic agreement that paved the way for subsequent progress toward Middle Eastern peace. Character profiles of the participants and commentary on how Judaism, Islam, and Christianity influenced the negotiations, this study vividly dramatizes and humanizes the momentous conference. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
