Camp David Accords - Clete Hinton. This book opens with a description of the history of the Jewish state and then documents the steps taken toward peace between Israel and Egypt. These steps resulted in a historic peace treaty being signed between the two countries on March 26, 1979 in Washington D.C. At that time and place, Anwar El Sadat (President of Egypt) and Menachem Begin (Prime Minister of Israel) ended thirty years of intermittent war and uneasy truces between their two countries. Many months of persistent and skillful negotiations were required. Without the constant, unswerving encouragement and guidance of President Carter, the peace treaty might never have been signed. In a concise and fascinating way, Mr. Hinton has brought together the highlights of this far-reaching world event and described how it occurred as well as the obstacles that had to be overcome.
