A dramatic, illuminating day-by-day account of the 1978 Camp David conference, when President Jimmy Carter convinced Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to sign a peace treaty-the first treaty in the modern Middle East, and one which endures to this day. Wright reveals the full extent of Carter's persistence in pushing peace 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.
