The peace between Israel and Egypt is a rare historical instance of a long and complicated conflict that ended in a contractual agreement between equals. One of the conclusions of this book is that Israel underwent considerable systemic changes and so did its nearer and further environment. Israeli behaviour changed and gradually became responsive to various inducements, the nature of which also changed or was differently perceived. Israel and Egypt pursued peace by different and sometimes contrary means. This work shows, however, that it only became possible to reach the agreement when sufficient inducements were at work.
