Description:

Reviled as a fascist by his great rival Ben-Gurion, venerated by Israel's underclass, the first Israeli to win the Nobel Peace Prize, a proud Jew but not a conventionally religious one, Menachem Begin was both complex and controversial. A powerful orator and mesmerizing public figure, Begin was imprisoned by the Soviets in 1940, joined the Free Polish Army in 1942, and arrived in Palestine as a Polish soldier shortly thereafter. He achieved instant notoriety for the organization's bombings of British military installations and other violent acts. Daniel Gordis' perceptive biography gives us new insight into a political figure whose influence continues to be felt both within Israel and throughout the world.

Quotes:

Thoughtful and well-written., The Wall Street Journal

Gordis writes well about Begin's personal qualities...capturing both his character and his place in Israeli history., Publishers Weekly

The story of Menachem Begin is an inspiring story of Israel, and his legacy is one that lives with us still. Daniel Gordis expertly recreates that epic and passionately passes that tradition on to his listeners. Anyone wishing to understand Israel-its past as well as it current affairs-must turn to Gordis' Begin., Michael Oren, , Author of Six Days of War
