When first published in 1976, this truly monumental history was hailed as a definitive work. The revised and expanded edition covers all issues from that point to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995. Sachar's topics include the rise of Jewish nationalism, Theodor Herzl and the rise of political Zionism, Zionism after Herzl, the Balfour Declaration, the seeds of Arab-Jewish confrontation, Palestine in World War II, postwar Palestine, the war of independence, the growth of the Israeli republic, Israel's search for peace and security, economic and social growth, the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, the Likud era, peace with Egypt, and Israel's involvement in Lebanon. Sachar concludes with chapters focusing on what he calls a tormented road to peace and an appraisal at half century. As extraordinarily stimulating as the first edition.

This is an extremely detailed history of Israel. To someone who is not really trying to learn about a specific period or incident, the detail is a bit much. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mark on Amazon
