Those I Have Known

By Anwar El-Sadat
Continuum, 1984
140 pp. $12.95

Brief sketches written or recorded by Sadat during the last year of his life. Outspoken, personal and self-serving, they describe dramatic moments in Sadat's career and give sharp judgments on other leaders (fervently positive for Nasser, Faisal, Tito and Carter; scornfully negative for Assad, Qaddafi, and the men in the Kremlin).
