Egypt and Israel
Egypt and Israel
By Howard M. Sachar
Marek, 1981, 384 pp

An American historian who has written at length on the Middle East and on Zionism and Israel reviews the five wars between Egypt and Israel and the intervals in between, coming finally to the "fragile accord" of Camp David and the present "precarious embrace." It is a balanced and well-written account for the general reader, relying on the voluminous existing literature and unencumbered with notes and citations.
