Psychology Press, 1999 - Political Science - 324 pages
From the prelude of the October 1973 Middle East war through the signing of the Egyptian-Israeli Peace Treaty in March 1979, Kenneth W. Stein traces American involvement in the Arab-Israeli negotiations. He provides a range of first-hand accounts, recollections and anecdotes from over eighty bureaucrats, diplomats and military leaders who participated in Arab-Israeli peace talks in the 1970's and since. Charting the complex and often contradictory goals of Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Syria, the US and the USSR, Stein chronicles the evolution of these negotiations and analyzes the roles of Sadat, Kissinger, Carter, and Begin. --From publisher's description.
