Book Description

1 Oct 2007
Since his earliest days in the White House, Jimmy Carter has demonstrated an untiring passion for pursuing peace in the Middle East. His formation of the Carter Center and his continuing prominent role in world affairs has done nothing to dampen that passion. In this new edition with an updated afterword and chronology, President Carter demystifies the history of the political expectations of each nation in the Middle East, the reasons for their different goals, and the nature of their prime concerns. His landmark study provides an enlightened and reconciling vision for all--Jews, Muslims, and Christians--who share the blood of Abraham.

Product Description

Review

"The book's main lesson is one that Carter taught so well at Camp David: that adversaries in the Middle East can make giant steps toward peace if America's president acts as a 'trusted mediator' and an 'unwavering, enthusiastic' partner in the process." --Newsweek "A caring, well-researched and closely informed book . . . can be read by the non-expert without fear of arcane overload, yet can be read profitably by experts for its clearness of thought." --Atlanta Journal and Constitution

About the Author

In this book, President Carter shares his experiences in dealing with Middle Eastern leaders as they attempted to create peace throughout the region. President Carter uses religious history to bring coherent insight to the reader about this conflict and proposed resolutions. Through his descriptions of the heads of state at the Camp David Summit, President Carter exposes each leader's humanity (including his own)giving the reader further understanding of this situation and politics overall. As one interested in what happens behind the scenes, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and give it thumbs up to like-minded readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars President's Carter shares his Idealistic Views 7 Oct 2007
Format:Paperback
This book is a summary by the former President on his experiences negotiating the Camp David Accords, his visits to the Middle East, and portraits of the Arab and Israeli leaders through his eyes. The former president actually maintains that peace in the Middle East must be based on Israeli recognition of the Palestinians' right to self-determination and Arab recognition of Israel's right to exist. If you wish to start to see how our Former President saw the Middle East, it is worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want an informed opinion on the middle east? 2 Mar 2006
By Pat Osborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A must for understanding the middle east. Everything Jimmy Carter said in 1983 is still true today... "only more so."

A perfect blend of ancient and modern histories. His personal experience makes it come alive.

I couldn't believe how clear it was. Very understandable.
