In September 1978, President Jimmy Carter met with Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian president Anwar Sadat to broker a peace agreement between the two Middle Eastern nations. After thirteen tumultuous days a treaty was forged which would go on to last for more than three decades. With his hallmark insight into the forces at play in the Middle East, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lawrence Wright takes us through each day of this historic conference, illuminating the issues that have made the region's troubles so intractable and exploring the scriptural narratives that continue to frame the conflict. Featuring vivid portrayals of the three leaders and other key participants, Thirteen Days in September is a riveting depiction of an unprecedented diplomatic triumph. Named as one of the best books of the year by the Financial Times, Economist, The New York Times and The Washington Post, it captures the extraordinary and profoundly difficult process by which an agreement was reached, providing us with a timely reminder that peace in the Middle East is possible.
