Reviews

"Masterly. . . . Magnificent. . . . Wright reminds us that Carter's Camp David was an act of surpassing political courage." --The New York Times Book Review "An illuminating view of a vital event. . . . Both riveting and revealing." --The Boston Globe "Mr. Wright displays a sensitive understanding of the region and a fine pen as he sketches in the characters and motivations of the three main players." --The Economist "Spellbinding. . . . A cliffhanger. . . . A page-turner." --Chicago Tribune "Fascinating personal and historic detail." --The Christian Science Monitor

"Brilliant penetrating scholarship.... Elucidates the issues that continue to plague the Middle East.... Wright expertly captures every move of the three-way realpolitik chess match." --Entertainment Weekly

"Exceedingly balanced, highly readable, and appropriately sober." --Los Angeles Times

"A splendid and suspenseful account of the negotiations that led to the Camp David accord." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A chronicle of diplomatic success. . . . The heart of the book is the daily, sometimes hourly shifts in tactics and postures, stands and counterstands, that unfolded over 13 days in 1978." --The Plain Dealer

"A unique moment in history superbly captured. . . . A day-by-day account of the tense negotiations that shaped these historic talks. . . . Yet another triumph for Wright." --Kirkus Reviews (starred) "Meticulously researched. . . . Almost nail-bitingly tense. . . . An authoritative, fascinating, and relatively unbiased exploration of a pivotal period and a complicated subject." --Publishers Weekly (starred)
