I've been looking for a book about the Middle East, one that goes back far enough to help understand the bloody mess of the place. [[Jimmy Carter]]'s book was perfect, going back to biblical history, as a foundation, and traveling through all of modern history. Honestly, I could have stopped after reading the acknowledgements, as Carter says of the strife there, "The most unremitting conflicts of the Middle East are not on the battlefields but in the minds of the people there." He comes back to this concept again and again, detailing his visits with the leaders in power when he was President in efforts to establish some kind of peace in the region. The keen understanding of the human condition he brings to the accounts of these meetings is so necessary in understanding how we got to this place. He is somewhat forgiving of the Reagan years, but lays much of the blame for the broken peace in quick-draw Ronnie's Beirut policies. So many missed opportunities, so many leaders ooking for individual victories and to maintain political power.

There is only one other review here on LT, and it is quite dismissive. Sure, you could read this book to see what things looked like during the Carter years. Or, you could read this book because Jimmy Carter is the only American President to broker any form of peace in about 100 years. Seems like that's a good reason to start here if you want to understand this part of the world.

Highly Recommended!!!!!

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. ( )
