Step by Step in the Middle East
This investigative report on Kissinger’s step by step diplomacy in the Middle East draws for the first time on highly secret U.S. government documents on the area. From the period of the October War, through the signing of the disengagement agreements, until Kissinger’s successful clinching of the Sinai agreement of 1975, the reader glimpses Kissinger in private conclave with the major Arab and Israeli leaders involved in negotiations. Sheehan, who is a Research Fellow at Harvard University, conducted extensive interviews with officials in the U.S. and the Middle East to obtain the material for the article, which is translated from Foreign Policy (Mar. 1976).
