Negotiating from the Inside Out

[Robert Morris]

After President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Prime Minister Menachem Begin met for several days with President Jimmy Carter (September 1978), the “Camp David Accords” were announced. Sadat and Begin were asked how their countries were able to reach the agreements after thousands of years of deep hatred and bloody warfare. Begin replied, “We did what all wise men do. We began at the end.”
