Summary
A gripping day-by-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. Wright takes us through each of the thirteen days of the Camp David conference, illuminating the issues that have made the problems of the region so intractable, as well as exploring the scriptural narratives that continue to frame the conflict. In addition to his in-depth accounts of the lives of the three leaders, Wright draws vivid portraits of other fiery personalities who were present at Camp David -- including Moshe Dayan, Osama el-Baz, and Zbigniew Brzezinski -- as they work furiously behind the scenes. Wright also explores the significant role played by Rosalynn Carter. Wright exhibits the full extent of President Carter's persistence in pushing an agreement forward, the extraordinary way in which the participants at the conference -- many of them lifelong enemies -- attained it, and the profound difficulties inherent in the process and its outcome, not the least of which has been the still unsettled struggle between the Israelis and the Palestinians
