After the Guns Fall Silent
After the Guns Fall Silent
By Mohamed Sid-Ahmed
St. Martin's, 1977, 144 pp.

A distinguished Egyptian journalist points to the role of the October War in removing obstacles and inhibitions to a negotiated peace, and warns that failure to grasp the opportunity can only make the Palestine question more explosive and bring a new round of hostilities that could be nuclear. The book has stirred considerable controversy in the Arab world since its original publication in Arabic in 1975.
