The personalities, the principled issues, the maneuverings, the clashes, the compromises and agreements that were, at the time, hidden in the background, are now unveiled. The period covered, from June 1977 until a day before Sadat's assassination in October 1981, affords the public a startling introspective into the efforts, crises and agonizing decisions these two leaders faced and overcame to achieve peace. Richly illustrated with photos, this groundbreaking volume sheds new light on a peace process that succeeded.
