Overview

"The most authoritative account of a major historic event, written with scrupulous scholarship by a key behind-the-scenes participant."—Zbigniew Brzezinski, Adviser to the President for National Security Affairs, 1977-81 ". . . an excellent piece of work . . . will represent a major contribution to the academic literature on American Middle East policy during the Carter administration. No one but Bill Quandt could, in my view, write so knowledgeable, yet so judiciously balanced, and account."—Hermann Frederick Eilts, Director Boston University Center for International Relations, and Ambassador to Egypt, 1973-79 "In his detailed, carefully balanced and meticulously researched history of the Carter administration's goal in helping Israel and Egype achieve peace, Bill Quandt has produced an admirable model of contemporary historical writing . . . a major contribution to the literature on the Middle East."—Samuel W. Lewis, Diplomat-in-Residence, The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, and Ambassador to Israel, 1977-85 "This book is likely to remain the most thoroughly researched and complete account by far of the Camp David negotiations and the American policymaking leading up to them to be written by an American participant. It is unique in its scholarship, its authority and its insight—and it is good reading."—Harold H. Saunders, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, and former Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs, 1978-81.
