Abstract:

"In September 1978, three world leaders - Menachem Begin, prime minister of Israel; Anwar Sadat, president of Egypt; and US president Jimmy Carter - met at Camp David to broker a peace agreement between the two Middle East nations. During the thirteen-day conference, Begin and Sadat got into screaming matches and had to be physically separated; both attempted to walk away multiple times. Yet, by the end, a treaty had been forged - one that has quietly stood for more than three decades, proving that peace in the Middle East is possible. Lawrence Wright combines politics, scripture, and the participants' personal histories into a compelling narrative of the fragile peace process...Thirteen Days in September is a timely revisiting of the diplomatic triumph they achieved and an inside look at how peace is made." -- book cover
