From the former First Lady of Egypt, New York Times best-selling author, crusader for women’s rights, and widow of the slain Nobel Peace Prize winner Anwar Sadat, comes a timely, clear-eyed examination of the defining issues of the Middle East.
"The real hero of the peace agreement of 1979 between Israel and Egypt was Anwar Sadat. This book of his wife, Jehan, reminds us that Anwar's dream of regional peace is still alive."
– President Jimmy Carter
"Part memoir of her husband's courageous initiative to recognize Israel's right to exist, which earned him the Nobel Peace Prize but cost him his life, part reminder that terrorism and radical fundamentalism are repudiated by the overwhelming majority of Muslims, Jehan Sadat's My Hope for Peace is a moving, powerful, and illuminating book."
– Dr. Henry Kissinger
"Sadat provides an important, insistent voice for continued advancement in peace and social justice."
– Publishers Weekly
"Jehan Sadat, the widow of Anwar Sadat, is one of the great ladies of our time. Her book, My Hope for Peace, has both authority and solutions. Her words are more than ever relevant and necessary at this time."
– Barbara Walters
