He was personally connected to some of the most historically relevant moments of the past century: the Suez War; the Camp David Accords; the fall of Saddam Hussein in Libya and the establishment of the International Criminal Court. A true global citizen - raised in Egypt, educated in Europe and emigrated to the United States - his life cut across cultures and religions. This fascinating memoir gives an immediate and personal eye-witness account of the operation of international law during a tumultuous period.
