Summary Focusing on the character and personality of Menachem Begin, Gerald Steinberg and Ziv Rubinovitz offer a new look into the peace negotiations between Israel and Egypt in the 1970s. Begin's role as a peace negotiator has often been marginalized, but this sympathetic and critical portrait restores him to the center of the diplomatic process. While Begin did not leave personal memoirs or diaries of the peace process, Steinberg and Rubinovitz have tapped into newly released Israeli archives and information huosed at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and the Begin Heritage Center. This analysis illuminates the complexities that Menachem Begin faced in navigating between ideology and political realism toward a peace treaty that remains a unique diplomatic achievement
